Tax credits cuts: a LITRG briefing

Published on 20 October 2015

MPs debated the forthcoming changes to tax credits on 20 October, and peers will debate regulations implementing the April 2016 cuts on 26 October.

We are greatly disturbed by the effect these measures will have on the financial position of households on the lowest incomes. Many claimants are likely to suffer hardship from next April and will have insufficient time to adjust budgets or consider their options. We are briefing MPs and peers on these issues and a copy of our 19 October briefing to MPs is available PDF icon here.
