10,610 Eastbourne families face a £20 per week cut in Universal Credit or working family tax credit.
That figure has been supplied by Eastbourne Foodbank.
Can it be right?
Here’s one Eastbourne grandfather who only this weekend wrote to Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell about this.
Here is his letter: “Dear Mrs Ansell,
I sincerely hope you will vote against The Government concerning the proposed cut to Universal Credit.
Surely it would be better to keep the increase permanent.
I have a daughter bringing up three boys on her own and she relies on Universal Credit and I do not knowhow she would cope losing £20.00 per week with food and household bills going up regularly.
Please consider your constituents and vote with your heart and not The Government.”
