Truss Replaces Raab In Reshuffle As Zahawi Gets Education Role Following Williamson’s Exit – UK Politics Live

With the cabinet reshuffle having somewhat overshadowed the Commons vote urging the government to cancel the cut to the £20 universal credit uplift, Labour has highlighted that sacked Tory ministers - who voted for the cut - will be handed £17,000 each in severance payments when they return to the backbenches.

Ministers and other paid office holders who receive a ministerial salary are entitled to a severance payment when they leave office, which generally equals three months of their annual ministerial salary.

Labour’s motion to stop the planned £1,000 a year cut to universal credit passed as the government ordered its MPs to abstain. The cut will affect one in 14 British workers and see an estimated 700,000 people plunged into poverty, including 200,000 children.

Jonathan Reynolds, the shadow work and pensions secretary, said:

That the government is giving payoffs to those they do not deem competent enough to be in government while cutting the incomes of millions of people is an insult to hard-working people.

It is deeply regrettable that the Conservatives have chosen not to protect struggling families from the prime minister’s £1,000-a-year cut.

Labour is on the side of working families and will keep pushing for the government to see sense, listen to the house and cancel this cut.
