David Cameron to help mums
In April, David Cameron is giving millionaires a tax cut worth an average £100,000, at the same time he is asking mums to pay more.
Cuts to real terms maternity pay mean a £180 ‘MUMMY TAX’ which is coming out of mums' pockets, at a time when family budgets are being stretched more than ever.
David Cameron promised to lead the most family friendly government ever. Since then he has:
x Cut child benefit for 1.2 million families from this January
x Scrapped the £190 Health in Pregnancy Grant
x Scrapped the Child Trust Fund
x Frozen child benefit payments for three years
x Cut maternity pay in real terms
x Closed 401 Sure Start Children’s Centres.
Labour understands the pressures that
families face. That is why we:
✓ Increased maternity leave from 18 weeks to nine months
✓ Doubled maternity pay
✓ Opened 3,500 Sure Start Children’s Centres
✓ Introduced Child Tax Credits.
Now, when times are tough, families need a government that is on their side, not one that asks mums to pay more and millionaires to pay less.
‘This Tory-led Government is choosing to make mums pay more at the same time as they are giving millionaires an average £100, 000 tax cut. I just don’t understand how can they prioritise millionaires when mums are struggling?’
