Labour opposes the Tory tax credits cuts which hurt working people. Their plans mean more than 3 million working families will be on average £1,300 worse off next year.
In Parliament, Labour Lords won a vote which will make a real difference – it stops the Tory plans from going ahead entirely unless specific protections are brought in for the most vulnerable, forcing them to go back to drawing board and rethink. But there is more to do. The Government have been delayed but they’re still refusing to say that they’ll change their plans so no working people are worse off next year.
Come and join us in Oldham West and Royton on the by-election campaign trail to get signatures on our petition and help people send a message to the government on December 3rd.
