The next Fabian seminar will be held in Wellington on Monday 13th September at Connolly Hall in Guildford Street at 5:30pm. Titled “Why not fix child poverty” – Speakers are Sue Bradford from the Alternative Welfare Working Group, and David Choat from PolicyProgress.
This follows the successful Fabian seminar held in Auckland two weeks ago with Susan St John from Child Poverty Action Group and Sue Bradford.
The Government has set up its Welfare Working Group with a set agenda – it doesn’t include fixing child poverty. The Tax Working Group thought that equality meant no change to child poverty – there would be equally as many poor children after their changes as before. The Fabians think that these issues need debate. Seminars are free and all are welcome.
