Chi speaks out against Universal Credit

I’ll vote to #pauseandfix #UniversalCredit to save my constituents from misery & destitution. Will any Tories vote to do the same?

Newcastle was also a pathfinder constituency. As the local MP, I have seen at first hand the absolute misery and destitution that this system has forced many of my constituents into. Our Newcastle food bank was already the largest in the country, and now it regularly runs out of food as a direct consequence of this system. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Prime Minister’s attitude at ​questions earlier today showed a total lack of understanding of the impact and of the destitution and suffering of so many of her citizens?
