Make the £20 per week uplift to Universal Credit permanent.
Confirm that the uplift will be incorporated, permanently, into the standard rate of Universal Credit, for all present and future claimants of Universal Credit.
To withdraw it will make the already precarious financial position of the most vulnerable members of our society, particularly those who cannot, or have great difficulty working, such as the sick and single parents of small children, much worse. Increasing the national living wage will not compensate for its removal, and in any event will reduce entitlement to Universal Credit.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
