In a letter to the local press, Mr. Raybould stated, ‘As the Great Tax Credits Swindle was being voted down by the House of Lords, I came across the latest Tory Residents Update from Kevin Foster. It features his baking a Cake and asking constituents to contact his office if concerned about Tax Credit Cuts. Unfortunately Kevin does not inform them he voted to implement them’.
Torbay & South Devon TUC vehemently opposes cuts to Tax Credits. Such cuts will have a devastating effect on families in one of the most poverty stricken areas in the south west and could also have an impact on the local economy. For a local MP to vote in favour of something that will have a serious impact on poorer families and local traders shows complete lack of understanding of Torbay.
Continuing his criticism of the Torbay MP, Mr Raybould added ‘Perhaps Kevin Foster will list the ingredients that constituents cannot afford to bake a cake with after Tax Credits cuts or the contact for the nearest Food Bank. He is so out of touch it must be embarrassing to the Conservative Association who chose him.Follow
