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?
