Jessica Morden Jessica Morden - Labour MP for Newport East, Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Commons and PPS to Keir Starmer
In Welsh Questions today I raised concerns around the half-measures in UK Government schemes & those excluded from the support.
I said “For those who are able to access the Government’s new job support scheme—many are locked out or deemed by the Government to be in unviable jobs—a cut of a third of wages for the low paid makes it extremely hard to pay bills and feed families. Does the Secretary of State really get this? If so, will Wales Office Ministers fight to get a better scheme?”
In his response, the Secretary of State invited me to send him examples from constituents affected. You can share your experiences with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
