Recently we asked for your support regarding an open letter sent to Liam Byrne, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, in which we requested a debate in parliament regarding a Cumulative Impact Assessment of all the changes happening to benefits, all at the same time.

We have received a reply from Liam Byrne to our request. He has invited us to meet with him to disccuss it further. This is great news.

The logistics of getting 3 or 4 of us to London will prove an ‘interesting’ challenge!

So – Pat and Liam will discuss this further over the phone tomorrow ( Mon 3rd Dec 2012).


We will keep you posted of details once confirmed. In the meantime please still contact him and/or your own MP. Inform them how you are being affected by these changes now, and also your fears for the times ahead.

Thank you
