Meacher leads debate on benefit injustice

Date published: 02 April 2014

OLDHAM MP Michael Meacher will tomorrow demand action to stop what he described as the “sheer injustice” of benefit claimants having payments stopped.

The Oldham West and Royton MP has been given Parliamentary time to discuss benefit stoppage following the Government’s refusal to tell him how many people had suffered such a sanction.

He said: “The details about the sheer injustice of the practice, its inappropriate targeting and its devastating impacts, all of which are horrendous, I shall spell out in full.”
