I note the Resolution Foundation’s work published in December 2015.

This Government is focussed on securing economic prosperity, providing the foundations to support opportunity for all.

Through improved education, work chances, a fairer welfare system and a stronger economy we are aiming to help increase the standard of living for everyone in the UK.
