Baroness Hollis addressed North Norfolk Labour Party members and local people on the benefits system last night (Thursday evening). Speaking at Cromer Community Centre, the former Norwich City Council leader explained why she supported the proposed ‘Universal Credit’, but explained how the positive changes would be undermined by the government’s cuts. She tried to dispel the myths about the benefits system as well as explaining how the House of Lords were trying to water down some of the government cuts. Interested members of the public travelled from as far as Great Yarmouth to attend the event.
Just a reminder that Baroness Hollis of Heigham will be talking about the Welfare State on Thursday evening in Cromer. The former Norwich City Council leader and former government minister will be talking at an event hosted by North Norfolk Labour Party.
