As Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, Lucy has commented on the Tories’ agenda since the election, saying:
We need a government which stands up for working people, which builds a productive economy and delivers world class public services. Unfortunately the Tories have spent the last 100 days failing to live up to this challenge.
Rather than focusing on making work pay, David Cameron has announced a cut to tax credits which will mean 3 million working families losing out; he’s failed to deliver on a promise to provide help with childcare; and he’s still taking the NHS backwards, watering down targets while standards of care fall further and patients wait longer.
David Cameron made many promises during the election but he’ll be judged on actions, not words. The last 100 days have revealed a Tory Government which is failing to put working people first.
