MS Society petition against disability benefits cuts

MS Society is launching an e-action on behalf of the Disability Benefits Consortium, asking people to sign an open letter to the party leaders, calling for no cuts to disability benefits under a new Government.

The MS Society hope that thousands of people will sign so they can demonstrate the strength of feeling on this issue.

The e-action will be sent to leaders of all the UK main parties and will be promoted on social media until it closes on Tuesday 30 May.

The MS Society will also be taking part in a joint Disability Benefits Consortium/Care and Support Alliance hustings event on welfare and social care issues on Tuesday 30 May — with spokespeople from the Lib Dems, Labour and Conservatives.
