Labour has secured a vote to force the Government to conduct an assessment of the impact of social security changes on disadvantaged groups.

Posted By Steven Preece - 18/12/2017

Labour has secured a vote on its amendment to the Finance Bill to force the Government to conduct an assessment of the impact of social security changes and fiscal measures on disadvantaged groups.

The Government failed to meet Labour’s demand for the Budget to be audited on the basis of gender, race, age, disability, class and region.

Other parties have now joined Labour calls for transparency, with 127 MPs from Labour, the Lib Dems, SNP and the Greens, signing Dawn Butler’s letter to Justine Greening calling for all Government policy to be assessed for their impact on disadvantaged groups.

Although the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) places a legal responsibility on public bodies, including the Treasury, to conduct equality assessments, Labour says the Treasury has failed to publish adequate equalities audits of its fiscal measures.

And their findings will be the same as always. More debate and nothing changed. The Tories seem untouchable yet the UN and various other such bodies have condemned their radical changes to welfare, even those in judicial circles have spoken about it (especially the fake medical assessments) not being fit for purpose, yet they have had very little or no impact on this government changing anything. Universal Credit will see to that.
