UNISON Welcome U-turn on Universal Credit

Following updates on Universal Credit, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis has welcomed the U-turn, but says the two-child limit should go for everyone.

Welcoming the government’s decision not to extend the two-child limit retrospectively, Prentis said: “The two-child limit is morally wrong and should be scrapped for everyone.

"Now at least families who had a third child before April 2017 won't be hit, but there are still many others with younger children who will be. This is a highly flawed system that needs to be thoroughly rethought.”
