We need you to do something for DPAC!
We want to get as many people as possible emailing their MP in the early part of this week, Monday or Tuesday asking for a response about their position on Universal Credit
Let us know when you have emailed the MP and let us know if they have responded and what they have said. Even if they don’t respond, please let us know you have written and they didn’t come back to you.
At the end of the week we want to be able to publish a list of MPs and what they responded with, and also a list of those that did not respond.
Many MPs will only respond to emails from constituents, so when you email them make clear that you live in their constituency.
MPs will also not respond to standard template letters, so we need you to write something in your own words, it needn’t be a long email, and there are some pointers of things you can say below this message
Please do this!
We need individual people, maybe you have never written to your MP before but it is really quite easy!
You can find your MPs email address by putting your postcode or town into this webpage and it will take you to the MPs contact details page
You can let us know which MP you have emailed and what they came back with by adding a comment to the comments section at the end of this page
————————————————-
Here are some things you can put into your email:
  • Universal Credit is totally flawed and will unfairly impact on disabled people/voters, women/ women voters, self-employed people/voters and anyone/voters on a low wage.
  • Its roll out must be stopped and it must be scrapped.
  • Disabled People Against Cuts will be collating a list of MPs, which will be made public on our website, of MPs who support stopping and scrapping Universal Credit and those who don’t.
  • DPAC will also be publishing a list of those who failed to respond
  • Could you please email  with your position on UC for publication.
  • If we do not receive a response by April 25th we will assume you support keeping this devastating welfare reform in place.

  1. No response yet from Barry Shearman who I emailed nearly a month ago. UC was rolled out fully here in Nov and there has already been a huge impact on people and orgs/charities who support them.

  2. Needless to say. I have had no responce from my mp. Marion Fellows snp, Not even an acknowledgement or anything and she did get my email. Another mp who is clearly not fit for purpose. They are supposed to be our representatives. They aren’t. They aare all out for themselves. I asked this mp for help over a year ago and she is still to respond. There is no accoountability any more. This sis something that is at the heart of our so called democracy. If they don’t do their jobs the public should be made aware they aren’t doing their jobs. No matter what political party they represent.

  3. My MO responded.. sorry forgot to forward but doing it now!

  4. I sent an email to my MP on the 16th of April and to date I have had no responce whatsoever. I am disgusted with the lack of responce from this MP and others. They are paid to do a job for their constituants and don’t do that job to the best of their ability. These people are not our representatives any more. They are after their own gains and not those they are supposed to represent

  5. Done !

  6. This is what I have written to my MP. Sorry to say she has not been very reseptive in the past to my enquiries, often not responding at all. I hope this time she listens to my request?
    Dear Marian Fellows,

    I am a member of dcap and have contacted you in the past regarding specific motions that have taken place in Parliament during your time as MP. I feel strongly about Universal credit and the undeserving and unfair impact it will have on specific groups in society. Universal Credit is totally flawed and will unfairly impact on disabled people/voters, women/ women voters, self-employed people/voters and anyone/voters on a low wage.
    Its roll out must be stopped and it must be scrapped.
    Disabled People Against Cuts will be collating a list of MPs, which will be made public on their website, of MPs who support stopping and scrapping Universal Credit and those who don’t.
    DPAC will also be publishing a list of those who failed to respond
    Could you please email with your position on UC for publication.
    If I do not receive a response by April 25th I will assume you support keeping this devastating welfare reform in place.

    There is a case at the moment being taken to court regarding the unfair discrimination against disabled people regarding Universal Credit. Why is this government not listening to what is actually happening to real people, real human beings in this country. They are being subjected to the most vile and systematic discrimination ever known. This has to stop and be reversed.

    I hope that you can help by voting for the scrapping of this vicious and life threatening system? Thousands of disabled people have lost their lives to these barbaric cuts. Please help stop more human beings losing their lives?

    Sincerely, John duff

  7. Done emailed Daniel Kawczynski
    Don’t have much hope of a response he rarely does

  8. We are committed to ending the regime of Theresa May and winning respect for disabled people in Our United Kingdom.

  9. Thanks for this. I’ve just emailed my MP – Barry Sheerman
