Tax credit changes currently being debated in parliament are set to leave thousands of working people across Dagenham & Rainham £1,300 a year worse off. Last week local MP Jon Cruddas joined 294 other MPs in opposing the Tax Credit Bill, and last night (26.10.15) the House of Lords demanded major changes to the bill – however George Osborne is still trying to push the policies through.

This speech regarding the recent decisions taken by Dagenham Ford, was delivered to the House of Commons today (06.11.2012) by Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham.
