Can anyone explain to Ms Coffey that the cliff edges are not actually in tax credits but in legacy dwp benefits, the cliff in tax credits is if you do not get enough hours to continue to qualify for wtc not if you work extra hours (and possibly then get the 30 hr element of wtc) unless your income gets high enough to no longer be entitled to tax credits.
