In response to the House of Lords votes on tax credits, Imran Hussain, Director of Policy at Child Poverty Action Group, said:
"The Government lost the votes in the Lords tonight but, more fundamentally, it's lost the big argument on its cuts for tax credits.
"We hope ministers take a deep breath and admit that these cuts will pull the rug from under the feet of working families. Ministers should now bring forward new measures to help working families; investing in tax credits not cutting them.
