Universal Credit and Employment and Support Allowance — Analysis of Impact of Changes on Those with Different Incomes — 16 Nov 2016 at 15:55

The majority of MPs voted in favour of reductions to the work allowance element of universal credit and reductions to employment and support allowance and against analysing how changes impact those in different incomes.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • notes with concern the £3.4 billion reductions to the work allowance element of universal credit and the £1.4 billion reductions to employment and support allowance;
  • calls on the Government to reverse those reductions; and
  • further calls on the Government to reintroduce detailed distributional analysis for the Autumn Statement and all further Financial Statements, as was done between 2010 and 2015.
