‘GOVERNMENT MUST COME CLEAN on cuts’ – Gwynne

_83250546_camDenton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne has challenged the Government to ‘come clean’ over where its £12 billion welfare cuts will hit.

He made the demand after this week’s Queen’s Speech failed to reveal how the Government will implement its massive reductions in public spending.

The Government hopes to distract attention from its still unexplained cuts to public services which, combined with a mass of unfunded election pledges, represent a hidden threat to working households and the public services upon which they depend.

Andrew Gwynne MP said:

“My constituents are still waiting to find out about the planned cuts in benefits for families and children, including child benefit, housing assistance, and disability allowances for the most vulnerable people.

“And Tameside and Stockport councils have already lost tens of millions of pounds in the last few years and now face even more swingeing cuts to the services that the public rely on.

“The Queen’s Speech was a missed opportunity. Britain needs a government focused on productivity and providing genuine help for people on middle and lower incomes.”
