DUP MPs vote with Tories to see of Labour motion on Universal Credit Impect

SIX DUP MPs last night voted with the British government  to see off a Labour Party motion to force the publication of Universal Credit briefing papers.

Labour had been attempting to push the government into releasing its analysis of the impact of Universal Credit. The party had wanted to access to information showning the effect on claimants’ income and debt levels.

There had been speculation that the DUP resentatives in the House of Commons would vote with Labour in a bid to show the Conservative party they were serious (but got cold feet) about voting against the government over Brexit.

There had been Tory concerns that the party could begin to obstruct Theresa May in parliament because of Brexit objections.

But the motion was defeated by 299 votes to 279 after four hours of debate.

With many thanks to: The Irish News for the original story.
