Letter to the Editor

At the Council meeting of the 17th January, the Labour Party proposed a Motion, supported by all parties, inviting Brandon Lewis MP to attend a Public Meeting to take questions on the roll out of Universal Credit in the Borough.

Great Yarmouth is being used by the DWP as a "test-and-learn centre," and there have been many cases of hardship caused to residents and families, from across all walks of life.


It came as no surprise when the MP refused to attend, and blamed the Labour Party and UKIP for playing political games. 

Can I assure Mr Lewis that we are not playing "political games", and that it is his Government, that is playing games with people's lives, and causing unnecessary suffering to some of the most vulnerable in society.   

Cllr Trevor Wainwright 
Magdalen Ward.
Leader of the Labour Group.
