Working families are set to lose, on average, £1,300 a year.
Just before the election Tories promised that there would be no cuts to tax credits in this Parliament.
Yet less than 6 months later a bill was passed through Parliament which will result in working families being more than £1,300 worse off.
The Tories are breaking their promises to stand up for working people. In Hackney alone, around 22,500 families with children will be hit by the changes. There are currently plans for transitional changes to protect affected families.
Labour recently backed a vote that delayed the plan- for the time being. Delaying the plan isn’t enough. We want David Cameron to stop the tax credit cut. You can sign our petition here.
