Four Tests for Budget 2018
This year again, members of the Community Platform assess whether and to what extent the Budget 2018 passes the following tests:
- Test 1: Will Budget 2018 redistribute income towards the poorest 20%
- Test 2: Will Budget 2018 strengthen access to quality employment?
- Test 3: Will Budget 2018 restore and strengthen public services which are of particular importance to people on low income?
- Test 4: Will the impact of Budget 2018 be assessed to ensure that all provisions reduce poverty and inequality?
