Budgets, Child Poverty & Cost of Living

Highlights of this month’s Economic Bulletin include the current inflation and cost of living crisis and the latest child poverty statistics, alongside an update of the regular economic indicators and forecasts.

We’re also looking forward to the Government’s 2022 Budget being announced in early May. Over the last few weeks, the CTU has consulted with our affiliates on the key areas of concern for their sectors and what they would like to see the Government deliver on and prioritise in the budget. We discuss our key recommendations ahead of the Budget and the CTU will also be putting out a report in response immediately post-budget.

As always, should you have any questions about the data or any requests for more information, please get in touch. We are always keen to discuss economic topics and any special requests for future editions.

We would like to thank affiliates for their contribution to the Budget 2022 position.
