"Reform cycle to work scheme so it can be used by lower-paid, Sunak urged"

Thought this article might be of some interest:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/may/23/reform-cycle-to-work-sch...

I agree with the premise that the current C2W scheme is not fit for purpose; however, the proposed "reform" appears to simply remove the requirement for income to exceed minimum wage after salary sacrifice which seems a case fiddling while Rome burns. In my view much more substantial reforms are needed, or more likely scrapping the whole "scheme" and replacing it with something better.
