The fight goes on.

 

Late last year the Liberal Democrats in Parliament scored a huge victory when pressure from our MPs and peers helped to force George Osborne to re-think his plans to cut tax credits, whilst Labour only proposed delays.

Sadly, despite Osborne's claimed U-turn in his Autumn Statement, the Conservatives are still pressing ahead with cuts to Universal Credit from 2017.

These cuts would see new claimants, or those who move home, losing an average of £1,080 a year.

Tim Farron and The Liberal Democrats in both The Commons and House of Lords are pledged to fight this proposal which is another attempt by Tories to claw back money from working families.
