Stephen Timms today received a heartbreaking letter at his constituency advice surgery from an 8 year old girl, whose family face financial difficulty.
Speaking after his surgery Stephen commented: "This is an extraordinary letter from a young girl suffering as a result of the financial pressures being placed on her family. It makes for painful reading. It strikes me that this is a very poignant example of what is happening to thousands of families. This government's policies are creating a cost of living crisis and it's people like this young girl, who have to face the consequences"
