SKY NEWS PANEL: 11th November 2020

Joined Sky News earlier to consider the news of the day, following Prime Minister's Questions.

I was pleased to see Ian Blackford MP asking the Prime Minister about vitally important issues to do with benefits uprating - the Tories must agree to continue the £20 uprating of Universal Credit on an ongoing basis - and those who are excluded from the Chancellor's provisions, including the newly self employed, and freelancers.

This will be a very hard winter for many, and we must support those who would otherwise be left out in the cold as we work to protect communities from Covid.
