Labour Party members in North Devon took Labour’s campaign to stop the Tory tax credit cut to the streets of Barnstaple at the weekend.
Local Labour spokesperson Mark Cann said “Hundreds of people stopped to sign the petition and people can still sign online at labour.org.uk/taxcredits. We are calling on Peter Heaton Jones to join with other Conservative MPs to get the Chancellor to change his mind”
‘Three million families will be affected by this cut. In North Devon alone around 5700 families will be hit and stand to lose £1,300 a year. The Government should not be hitting families who work hard day after day just to get by.
“Labour is calling on David Cameron to stop the tax credit cut. We need to balance the books, but the way to do that isn’t to hit the wallets of working families. “
