Harriett Baldwin praises DWP staff in West Worcestershire

4th May 2020

Harriett Baldwin praises work of DWP staff in West Worcestershire and rejects calls for a universal basic income in favour of a targeted system.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con) [V]

May I join colleagues in thanking DWP staff, particularly those in West Worcestershire who have worked so hard throughout this crisis? The Secretary of State has been asked a number of times about universal basic income and has resolutely rejected it. Can she confirm that a universal basic income would have to be paid universally — to everybody — including people like us?

Dr Coffey

My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We know that it is not a well-targeted system, and that is why we will continue to say that it is not the approach that this Government will take. May I also wish a belated happy birthday to my hon. Friend, who turned a significant age at the weekend?
