TAX CREDIT CUTS could hit more than half of families in the North West

New figures from Labour show that 56 per cent of families with children in the North West could be hit be David Cameron’s tax credit cuts.

The House of Commons Library figures also show that 72 per cent of people in the North West claiming tax credits are in work.

56 per cent of families with children in the North West receive Tax Credits. Across the UK the figure is 51 per cent.

Andrew Gwynne MP said:

“David Cameron and George Osborne still haven’t come clean about exactly what cuts to tax credits they are proposing. But it’s clear that low paid working families in the North West are in the firing line.

“The Tories concealed their proposals from public view throughout the election campaign. It is time for David Cameron and George Osborne to spell them out and let people judge whether or not they are fair.”
