The Welsh Liberal Democrats Demand Better for Wales. No one in Wales should have to live in food poverty but changes to Universal Credit threaten to plunge thousands into food poverty.
We are calling on the UK Government to:
- Pause the roll-out of Universal Credit in Wales,
- Remove the 5 weeks waiting period before claimants first payment,
- Establish a review to look into the effects UC will have on the most disadvantaged claimants.
