Wow. That really will sort all the problems.
How about not sanctioning them in the first place but giving them real help and support as the Oakley Review 26 recommendations suggest.
None of which have been implemented.

Good to see Mike, Maggie and Gill getting together to sponsor this petition.
Formidable opposition to the government!
Please sign, support and share as much as you can.

Right, £300 for turning up costing the taxpayer £13,500 per week when the lords is sitting but the staff who keep the place clean and do the hard work cannot pay their rent, have a nightmare with benefits and some weeks cannot eat.

Probably family, charities and food banks.
Something very wrong here…
