Alison McGovern MP urges George Osborne to reverse tax credit cuts following House of Lords vote to delay proposals

Speaking about the decision taken by Peers yesterday to delay the government proposals to cuts to tax credit Alison McGovern MP said: “My constituents have been in touch with me with their concerns about these government proposals and I have spoken to them directly to hear how they will be affected. There is huge concern from Wirral families. I hope the Chancellor will finally see sense following the votes in the House of Lords last night and that he will think again about these damaging cuts.

Ms McGovern added: “There is an overwhelming feeling that these cuts are unfair and penalise low earning families. I welcomed the Lords decision yesterday and hope it will lead to the government changing its stance on these proposals. I will continue to campaign against these changes that have been proposed by the government. I want to hear from families who would be affected by the government planned cuts. If you want to tell me your concerns directly I am holding a meeting this Friday at 1PM in my constituency. Please call my office on 0151 645 6590 for further details or email me.
