Plans for tax credit cuts have been blocked by House of Lords!

It has been announced that for the first time in 100 years, the House Of Lords has defied the elected party in attempt to over rule their plans to cut benefits.

The Lords twice voted to delay the welfare changes which is said to be leaving lower-paid families up to £1,300 a year worse off.

As a result of this, George Osbourne has now announced that he plans to help people hit by the cuts and they will be revealed in next month’s statement.

Sky news reports: ‘Labour’s John McDonnell said people had been “shocked” by the way the Chancellor had pushed ahead with the changes.

He said: “These cuts would hit working people the hardest.

“It’s just unacceptable, not just to the House of Lords but also to MPs on all sides in the House of Commons.”

The Lords have voted to delay the changes for another three years and are insisting that no changes are made until plans for an assessment are put in place to find out how the changes will affect the lower paid.
