Please make a U-turn on cuts

Please can you help press Amber Rudd and the Conservative party to make a U-turn and prevent tax credit cuts that stand only to cause poverty and distress to the hard-working poor.

The lines that families won’t be poorer are completely fallacious.

This misguided policy stands to punish exactly those we should be supporting. Those with little who are working hard to progress themselves and their families.

This policy will only cause hardship, child poverty and misery to thousands across the country and a great, great many in Sussex.
