Credit Card Debt

Today I tried to warn the Government ministers that some credit card companies are the new Wonga's exploiting the financial problems people have so we need to cap their costs just as we did with the payday lenders- they refused to listen arguing that credit cards are not a problem like payday loans. I fear it will take more than the 5 million people already facing 10 years or more to pay off their credit card before they listen and am proud Labour would cap the costs of credit cards.

Debt Advice

On the 18th of January, local Labour Party members heard from 3 speakers from representatives of the Citizens Advice bureau and Christians Against Poverty UK​ about the impact Universal Credit will have on our community. We've produced an leaflets with more information on local debt advice and advocacy services that you can view here.
