It seemed like a parallel universe in Dan Carden’s Westminster Hall debate on Tuesday as the DWP Minister sent to answer it seemed to know nothing about the administrative chaos, impoverishment, humiliation, mental anguish and hardship being caused by the introduction of Universal Credit in Liverpool. He even got an MP from Dudley to try and use up time in the debate talking about how wonderful it is in Dudley – until he was ruled out of order by the Chairwoman.

Out of Touch Minister Knows Nothing about Universal Credit Rollout in Liverpool

It seemed like a parallel universe in Dan Carden’s Westminster Hall debate today as the DWP Minister sent to answer it seemed to know nothing about the administrative chaos, impoverishment, humiliation, mental anguish and hardship being caused by the introduction of Universal Credit in Liverpool. He even got an MP from Dudley to try and use up time in the debate talking about how wonderful it is in Dudley – until he was ruled out of order by the Chairwoman. I have constituents who’ve been sanctioned for a whole year, families being fed by local charities like Can Cook and sick constituents unable to use their nebuliser needed to keep them breathing because their electricity has been cut off – all because of the administrative chaos of Universal Credit. If it wasn’t for Joe Anderson’s Mayoral Hardship Fund and the wonderful Liverpool Citizen’s Support Scheme – things would be even worse. The full roll out of Universal Credit must be stopped – it isn’t capable of working properly at present.
