On 17 October, Jeremy Corbyn motioned a parliamentary debate on Universal Credit. But Conservatives shot it down with 299 votes against 279.

Serious questions remain about why the government voted against releasing its own assessment of this devastating policy.
“What are the Tories afraid of?”

Work and pensions secretary Esther McVey recently admitted that millions of households could be up to £200 a month worse off under the benefit. Leaked documents revealed it’s in such chaos that there are further delays to full rollout. But those already forced onto the controversial benefit are suffering. And the government knows this.

So as Corbyn explained, this ‘humble address‘ aimed to force the Conservatives to “come clean about the impact of Universal Credit on vulnerable people and families”.
