Recently, Alison Thewliss, the Scottish National Party MP for Glasgow Central, along with 14 other Glasgow based MPs wrote to the Chancellor expressing concern over the changes.

Ms Thewliss said: “I and my Glasgow MP/MSP colleagues have written to Rishi Sunak to raise concerns about [the Government’s] plans to cut UC and Tax Credits by £20-a-week, and to continue to support to two children per family.

“These policies will push families into poverty and must be scrapped.”

The letter itself said: “We write to you as a group of MPs and MSPs across Glasgow who are deeply concerned about the impact on our constituencies, and others across the country, of the UK Government’s planned £20-a-week cut to Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit and the ongoing compounding negative impact of the two-child limit.
