Tory Cost-of-Living Crisis

The Women’s Budget Group pointed out that women are being hit the hardest by the Tory cost-of-living crisis, and research from the Resolution Foundation has highlighted the UK Government’s welfare reforms will push 500,000 children into poverty.


The reality is that this government is pushing communities down, not levelling them up.


The Minister responding to my question on this topic was entirely unable to explain why the UK Government chooses not to follow the lead of the Scottish Government and provide the support families need - such as the game-changing Scottish Child Payment - to get through this cost-of-living crisis.
