UK Parliament & Government

Repeal the Welfare Reform Act 2012

Responsible department: Department for Work and Pensions

We want Parliament to repeal the Welfare Reform Act of 2012.

http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41600

The Act vindictively targets all benefit claimants disproportionately causing millions of people financial hardship, poverty and at risk of starvation and homelessness.

The Bedroom Tax, the abolition of Disability Living Allowance, changes to Social Fund, ending of Council Tax Benefit, draconian sanctions on those deemed to have not actively sought work and more are all measures that have and will cause severe hardship.

The Act, in particularly targets sick and disabled people causing them immense hardship and unnecessary suffering.

Signed,

Michael Moulding
