Tax Credits

In October 2015, during a debate on an Opposition movement calling on the Conservative Government to reverse its decision to cut tax credits, Ms Allen made her maiden speech. In her speech Ms Allen criticised the Government decision, saying "I believe that the pace of these reforms is too hard and too fast. As the proposals stand, too many people will be adversely affected." However, she also stated that she believed the Opposition was "wrong to say that we must not touch tax credits" and accordingly voted against the motion.[2]
