CLASS Statement on Spring Budget

08/03/17

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Commenting on today’s Spring Budget, Director of CLASS Dr Faiza Shaheen, said:

“The Conservatives may be bragging about balancing the books, but they are doing so on the backs of struggling families across the country. In effect, pennies have been thrown at a chronically underfunded social care system and an NHS hospitals on black alert, while educational policy is being driven by ideology rather than need.

"With the unprecedented challenges of Brexit, this budget should have made bold investments in our social and physical infrastructure to ensure we emerge a stronger and fairer Britain. Instead we got a budget set on misguided policies, utterly blind to reality.”
