We will be continuing to pile pressure on the Tories regarding cuts to tax credits that are penalising working people, including the self-employed.
Following the defeat in the Lords George Osborne is preparing his autumn statement and is still looking to find £4.4 billion worth of cuts in order to mask the stultifying effects of his low growth economic policies. One suggested strategy is that he will try to hide the cuts in the new Universal Credit.
WE MUST ENSURE THAT THE TORIES ARE AWARE THAT LABOUR WILL CONTINUE TO CAMPAIGN TO PROTECT ASPIRATIONAL WORKING PEOPLE ON LOW INCOME.
Join us at 10.30am - 2pm in Newcastle Town Centre where we will be collecting signatures for the Labour Stop The Tax Credit Cuts campaign. Even if you can just spare 30 minutes of your time that will be much appreciated.
(we will have a preliminary meeting at 10am in the Labour Rooms to go through the campaign and stall organisation for those who can make it)
