CPAG: Fresh debate needed on making the economy fair

Commenting on Ed Miliband’s speech today on the economy and living standards, Alison Garnham, Chief Executive of Child Poverty Action Group, said: “The austerity agenda is hurting, but it’s not working. We’re standing on the brink of a disastrous surge in child poverty, which will come at great social and economic cost if we let it happen. So we welcome a fresh debate on how the wealthiest can make a fairer contribution, because right now it is families with children who are being made to carry the greatest burden, despite not being the cause of our economic crisis.”
