HOWARD Wardle is the CEO at Eastbourne Foodbank and a critic of the Tory government.

He has, however, backed Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell in the ongoing row over the upcoming £20 Universal Credit cut by the Tories.

Howard posted: “I have it in writing from Caroline Ansell MP that she supports keeping the £20.

“I applaud her decision.

“Foodbank will now work with her to look at how UC can be reformed to make it fit for purpose.”
