BENEFITS SANCTIONS: a critical issue for the Labour Party
Thursday 6 June – 7.30pm
Greek Cypriot Centre, Britannia Road, N12 9 RU
Meeting and discussion with David Webster and Stop Universal Credit campaigner
David Webster is a Senior Research Fellow at Glasgow University. He is currently carrying out an in-depth investigation into disallowances and sanctions in the UK unemployment insurance system.
Benefits used to be run on insurance principles – but the Blair government bought into the whole ideology of conditionality, sanctions and workfare. A research by the IFS concludes that almost 2million people will lose £1,000 a year with universal credit, and that it is those on disability benefits and low incomes who will be among the worst affected.
We look forward to seeing you there!
