Plaid vow to continue to fight for a fair settlement for benefit claimants at spring conference
A WELSH MP has vowed that his party will continue to fight for a fair settlement for benefit claimants.
Plaid MP Hywel Williams has said that the disabled, those on low incomes and the unemployed will be left with nowhere to turn when the cuts come in April.
At the party's spring conference in Beaumaris, the Arfon MP highlighted the injustice of the bedroom tax, and said that while household incomes are constrained and while homelessness continues to rise dramatically, the bedroom tax will have extremely damaging consequences for the people of Wales. Mr Williams said disabled people will have to choose between heating, eating or paying the rent.
"The bedroom tax is a devastating policy that will come into effect in April affecting 660,000 people, and 40,000 of them in Wales," he said. "It's important to note that those who claim benefits are not 'shirkers' — the majority of them are in work, on low wages, and facing increased rent charges. That's why Plaid Cymru has been leading the calls for a fairer settlement.
