Roll-out of Universal Credit in Glasgow

Volume 651: debated on Tuesday 18 December 2018

The petition of residents of Glasgow North,

Declares that the proposed roll-out of universal credit in the city of Glasgow will have a devastating impact on communities across the city and will lead to increased foodbank usage and financial misery for some of the most vulnerable people in Glasgow.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Department for Work and Pensions to halt the roll-out of Universal Credit in Glasgow and fix it without delay.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Patrick Grady, Official Report, 29 October 2018; Vol. 648, c. 750 .]
