Briefing for MPs

18 January 2016

Read our briefing for MPs in advance of the Second Reading of the Benefit Sanctions Regime (Entitlement to Automatic Hardship Payments) Bill 2015-16. 

We are urging MPs to support this Bill which will help to protect families from income crisis and destitution by:

  • Giving everyone who is sanctioned automatic access to a hardship payments
  • Ensuring that all hardship payments are non-repayable
