David Williams warns of Tory cuts
David Williams, Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Crewe and Nantwich has today warned of cuts, more cuts and even more cuts if the Tories get into power.
A Conservative Government would deal with the recession by:
- Cutting Labour's guarantee that all people under the age of 25 who are unemployed for a year will receive either a job or training.
- Cutting this year's £60 cash boost for pensioners while threatening to do away with free TV licenses and free bus passes for the elderly.
- Cutting support for families under real pressure who need to defer interest payments so they don't lose their homes.
- Scrapping the right for every patient to see a cancer specialist within two weeks if they are suspected of having cancer.
- Cutting £160m from crime-fighting budgets - the equivalent of losing three and half thousand police officers.
David Williams said, "You cannot cut your way out of a recession, you have to grow your way out of recession. It is right that Labour continues to support people in these difficult times."
