**Universal Credit
The Government's plans to overhaul the welfare system by forcing people onto Universal Credit have been widely criticised by MPs, charities, and campaigners all warning that this is likely to cause a rise in homelessness, poverty, and unnecessary debt. It will leave thousands without an income for weeks as they wait to be transferred, many will be left thousands of pounds worse off, and there is reduced support for claimants. The Trussell Trust have said that they expect a 30% increase in foodbank use this winter in areas where Universal Credit is rolled out. Child Poverty Action Group have found that Government welfare reform will push 1 million children below the poverty line.

The cost of moving to Universal Credit was originally estimated at £2.2bn, however it is now at a staggering £15.8bn and still rising.

Labour Future’s purpose is to steer the Labour party towards two key aims: reconnecting with the working class base, and reshaping the British economy towards a more manufacturing based, high wage, high job security, and resilient economy. Only by addressing these core issues can Labour win the support of the country.

Secondly, we must reshape the British economy towards a more manufacturing based, high wage, high job security, and resilient economy. We need a competitive exchange rate, and an environment that encourages long term investment over short term profiteering and asset sales.

Only by addressing these core issues can Labour win the support of the country.
