Ros Bradbury of Bradnor Green, Kington, asks is MP guilty over welfare reform?
3:00pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in Letters
SO Jesse Norman donated food to Hereford’s food bank (Hereford Times, July 19).
Did Jesse Norman vote for the Welfare Reform Bill that is causing a significant increase in the numbers of people in such extreme poverty that they cannot afford to feed themselves and their families?
Is he supportive of his Government’s various strategies that are designed to dismantle the welfare state that was designed to protect people the from the worst effects of relative poverty?
It is puzzling that an MP, who expresses concern that some of his constituents need food parcels to stave off starvation, is not trying to persuade his friends in Government to change their destructive policies.
