Working Tax Credits

Volume 551: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2012

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland,

Declares that changes to tax credits will plunge thousands of working families into poverty.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to reverse these changes; to provide real incentives for people to work; introduces measures to clamp down on tax avoidances; and ensures that the Government honours its commitment to end child poverty in accordance with the Child Poverty Act 2010.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
