Taxpayers Against Poverty ask new PM for cumulative assessment of all benefit cuts in UK

Guest Blog Post by Revd Paul Nicolson of Taxpayers Against Poverty

I am today posting a letter recorded delivery to the new Prime Minister — the full text can be found on the Taxpayers Against Poverty website — all good wishes — Paul

It begins;  
"Dear Prime Minister, 


May I congratulate you on becoming Prime Minister and wish you a successful term in the service of the people of the UK.
I am making one request. Please will you commission a report into:
  1. The cumulative impact of Housing Benefit cuts, benefit caps and Council Tax on the health of benefit claimants, in work and unemployment, since 2008 taking into account the impact of debt on mental health and the need for women to receive a healthy diet before they conceive and while they are pregnant if they are to give birth to healthy babies.
  2. The cost to the health service of poverty related ill health."
