I have here a cutting from The Pressin York on 24 April 2010, which says: “David Cameron last night dismissed claims the Tories would put up VAT if they win the election”. That was at the last election. Why should the public believe promises that he makes at the coming election?
To ask the Prime Minister, whether he plans to visit York before 7 May 2015.
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what the value was of payments for each type of benefit not paid as a result of sanctions against individual claimants in each year since 2010-11 in (a) Yorkshire and the Humber and (b) the City of York; and how many claimants were sanctioned in each such year in each such area.
