Disability cuts ‘breach UN standards’, says Swansea MP

Geraint Davies, MP for Swansea West, challenged the Minister for Work and Pensions this

Speaking in Parliament on Monday, Geraint Davies said: “The UN found that UK cuts disproportionately
hit people with disabilities and fundamentally, systematically and gravely undermine
their human rights, so will the Minister ensure today that personal independence payment,
employment and support allowance and universal credit are all brought into line with the UN
conventions on fundamental human rights, so that people are treated fairly and with dignity,
instead of with discrimination and cruelty?”
