Dawn Butler: Austerity “Hits Ethnic Minority Women The Hardest”

Dawn Butler called on the Chancellor to publish an equality impact assessment of the Budget, ahead of his speech next Wednesday. Ms. Butler said: "Austerity is a failed Tory economic project, which has hit African, Caribbean and Asian women the hardest." She also claimed that women and those from racial minority backgrounds stood to lose the most from changes to universal credit. She pointed to analysis by the Women's Budget Group and the Runnymede Trust which suggests women living in households eligible for universal credit under 2013 rules will lose £4,406 a year by April 2021 resulting from the combined impacts of changes to benefits, income tax and the National Living Wage introduced in June 2010. Ms. Butler claimed black women stand to lose £5,030 a year.
