Hyndburn MP Graham Jones calls for more help for working families
9:00pm Thursday 7th March 2013 in News
AN MP has joined a campaign calling for more government help to working families.
Hyndburn and Haslingden MP Graham Jones said that families in his constituency were struggling due to recent tax credit cuts. Mr Jones has joined the One Nation campaign by Labour politicians to highlight the issue.
He said: “I’m joining Ed Balls and Ed Miliband this week in launching Labour’s new campaign to highlight the unfair choices David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg have made.
“Earlier this month we found out the government has even failed on its own test – keeping Britain’s AAA credit rating. One Nation Labour government would cancel David Cameron’s millionaires’ tax cut, and make the tax system fairer by introducing a mansion tax and reintroducing a 10p tax rate to help working families.
“We simply can’t afford another two years of no growth.”
