Stop the Tax Credit cuts


Research by the House of Commons Library shows that Tory changes to tax credits will leave working families in average £1,300 worse off a year.

The Tories are breaking their promise to stand up for working people.

Over three million families will be affected by this cut to tax credits.

In Cheltenham, between 4,000 and 5,000 families will be hit.

Instead of helping working people, the Tories are pushing through changes which will hit working families in the wallet.

The proposals will leave 2.7 million families with children out of pocket, and there is a real risk that children will suffer directly as a result of these changes.

Even after the defeat on Tax Credits in the House of Lords, David Cameron has only said that a solution will be presented by the chancellor in the autumn statement at the end of November, but refused to say if the changes would leave people worse off.

Labour has launched a campaign to call on David Cameron to stop the tax credit cut.
