Conor McGinn MP has voted against cuts to tax credits proposed by the Government in parliament.\n \nThe IFS estimated that the cuts would lead to 3 million families losing over хЃ1000 a year.\n \nCommenting McGinn said:\n \n”These changes to tax credits will hit many working families hard at a time when many are struggling to make ends meet.
“Some 4,000 families in St Helens North alone will be over хЃ1000 a year worse off because of these cuts.\n \n”The Tory Government claims that their so-called national living wage will offset these changes, but the latest report from the Institute for Fiscal Studies rubbishes this.\n \n”This is the latest attack on workers’ rights and pay from the same old Tories.
“Although we lost this vote, I will continue to stand up in Parliament for St Helens North and won’t shy away from taking on the Government on these issues.”\n
