Response to Summer Budget

The summer budget promises to deliver more human misery to thousands of Wales’ poorest families. Cutting Housing Benefit for 18 to 21 year olds will affect 1,200 young people in Wales, many of whom have nowhere else to live. Leaving these young people out in the cold, while exempting them from the minimum wage increase, is sheer cruelty. Benefit freezes for people who are already in severe poverty will make life impossible.
