Credits vital to working families

I am very concerned about these proposed tax credit cuts. I live in St Leonards which is a deprived area where many people rely on tax credits as a supplement to their low wages.

My family, like many others, will be affected as it is already very difficult to make ends meet.

My wife works full time and I am self-employed, we have two children and will be much worse off after these cuts.

Our MP Amber Rudd needs to listen to her constituents and speak out on our behalf against these highly damaging cuts.
