Loan Charge Action Group CAMPAIGNERS DESCEND ON WESTMINSTER TO TELL PRIME MINISTER “KEEP YOUR PROMISE, BORIS”
Protest: 11.00am Wednesday 4th September 2019, St Stephen’s Entrance, House of Commons
Candlelit Vigil: 5:00pm Tuesday 3rd September 2019, Outside Whitehall HMRC office, London
Campaigners from the Loan Charge Action Group (LCAG) will greet Boris Johnson and MPs returning from summer recess this Wednesday 4th September 2019. They are calling on the Prime Minister “KEEP YOUR PROMISE, BORIS” to honour his commitment to suspend the Loan Charge and set up an independent review. The Loan Charge legislation is a punitive retrospective tax policy that is threatening UK contract workers and their families with bankruptcy.
On the eve of the protest campaigners will hold a one-hour candlelit vigil outside the offices of HMRC in memory of those who have taken their own lives following aggressive action by HMRC officers. They will also deliver a letter to HMRC on behalf of bereaved families who have lost family members to the Loan Charge.
