Michael Orton, the Commission’s secretary, explained why he believes Covid has exacerbated the pressures placed on the country’s social security system.

Mr Orton said: “The pandemic showed that when times were tough it was unpaid carers, supermarket workers and others on low incomes who kept our society going.

“It (the pandemic) also showed that if we choose to, we can provide social security for everyone.

“However, the recent cut to Universal Credit means the Government is headed in the wrong direction.

“With a cost of living crisis looming in 2022, it doesn’t have to be like this.”


UNIVERSAL CREDIT should be replaced with an alternative benefit scheme, experts have claimed, as they believe the current payment is “heading in the wrong direction”.
