Equality Trust Response to Conservative Manifesto

Dr. Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director of The Equality Trust, said:

"This manifesto appears to be, at best, a mixed bag on inequality reduction. Proposed changes to social care are likely to be significantly progressive, in particular regarding their indirect impact on inherited wealth, though they may prove a tough sell. It is also good to see a commitment to require large and medium sized companies to publish pay ratios. We have campaigned for this for some time, and it is an important step in delivering greater transparency and reduced pay inequality.
