STUC Lobby of Dundee Lib Dem Conference

11.30am-1pm Saturday 16th March 2013                            Westpark Conference Centre                                                   Dundee

As part of the wider national campaign for fair welfare and an end to the attack on benefits, STUC is organising a Lobby of Liberal Democrat Conference in Dundee on 16th March at Westpark conference centre in Dundee.

It is still not too late for the Government to change its position on welfare including reversing its decision on the horrific bedroom tax and abandoning its attempt to cap benefits for many of the poorest in society.
