Rejected petition Make the Senedd take on the Universal Credit top-up and make it permanent

The UK government last week ended the Universal Credit uplift of £20 a week, in a time of inflation, with rising food, fuel and energy costs.

I call on the Senedd to match funding to ensure the uplift in Universal Credit continues in Wales.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Petitions to the Senedd must call for a specific action that falls within the powers of the Senedd or Welsh Government.

Social security is currently reserved to the UK Government, with the
exception of some benefits. As a result, it is not possible for the Senedd to take the action called for by your petition.

Further information about the powers and responsibilities of the Senedd can be found here:
