Stop the attacks on welfare

The Labour Representation Committee (LRC) website hosts a useful reminder of the importance of lobbying MPs ahead of Wednesday's Commons vote on welfare "reform" (http://l-r-c.org.uk/news/story/urgent-action-stop-the-welfare-bill/).



The timetabling of the vote on the day after the final debate in the Lords is an attempt to insulate MPs from pressure, such as that exerted by civil disobedience by the Disabled People's Direct Action network on Saturday (http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/news/content/view/full/114770).



Resources to lobby MPs are also available on the website of Disabled People Against the Cuts with a good report of Saturday's action (http://www.dpac.uk.net/2012/01/disabled-activists-block-regent-street/).
