Mid Ulster - Austerity

Every adult should receive Universal Basic Income
Universal Credit, PIP & Work Capability Assessment all need reformed
The Social Sector Size Criteria should be abolished
Austerity cuts in the community should be reversed in important sectors such as the arts, youth clubs and sports
Pay-to-use ATM machines should be scrapped
Supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and other businesses must donate unused food to food banks
  • We would support the UK Government rolling out a UBI.
  • UBI is not a proven solution to low pay or poverty and further research as to its benefits and implicatuions would be welcomed. If it proves effect I woud certainly support it. While donating unused food to food banks is kaubible it also risks en]mbedding the foodbank culture into our society
