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
