Motion text

That this House notes that welfare cuts, benefit changes and reductions in public services disproportionally affect women, disabled people and Black, Asian and ethnic minorities (BAME); recognises a joint consultation response from the UK Women’s Budget Group, Maternity Action and the End Violence Against Women Coalition (EVAW) which has called on the Government to commit to increase long-term public spending, which is the most effective way to level up; echoes the calls of the Women’s Budget Group and others for the Government to carry out and publish equality impact assessments which should consider cumulative impact, intersectional impact, the impact on individuals as well as households, impact over a lifetime and the impact on unpaid care; therefore calls on the Government to undertake and publish a comprehensive equality impact assessment of all the Spending Review and Budget which includes an analysis of the impact of all measures, and a cumulative assessment, by gender, race, age, disability, income and region; and urges the Government to take urgent action to address structural inequalities, including structural racism.
