Commission responds to 25 May Govt Budget

Budget goes part-way towards relieving poverty

The Auckland Catholic Diocese Commission for Justice and Peace believes it is the responsibility of Government to foster the common good and support the poorest & most vulnerable in society rather than just ‘building a more productive and competitive economy’ to the possible detriment of the wider community. Some measures in the Budget go some way towards addressing this responsibility.

  • Housing the Homeless
  • Caring for Families
  • Investing in Prisoner Rehabilitation
  • Protecting our Environment
