CAMPAIGNERS for the No 2 Bedroom Tax campaign, in Scotland, have invited local activists, campaigns, politicians and residents, in Cumbernauld to demonstrate outside the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party conference, in Stirling, next Saturday.

The invitation is extended to residents in Cumbernauld following the latest anti-bedroom tax meeting, in Cumbernauld’s Link Centre, by the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Defend Public Sector Jobs and Services campaign.

“David Cameron is addressing the Scottish Tory conference in Stirling,” a spokesperson for the event said. “We are marching from King's Park to the Albert Halls to tell the Tories Stirling says no to the Bedroom Tax and their savage welfare reforms.”
