GSD Meet With Action For Poverty

The GSD yesterday met with Action for Poverty where they discussed causes and consequences of financial hardship.

GSD Leader Keith Azopardi said: “We had a wide-ranging discussion on dealing with the causes and consequences of financial hardship. We fully accept that there is much to be done in reforming the social security system so it can be more easily administered and helps those in need more directly. The discussion was very useful in identifying the objectives that Action for Poverty are campaigning for. The GSD is committed to ensuring that, in Government, we take clear measures to help people who require social and financial assistance because of their own circumstances be it unemployment, disability or other family or special circumstances.” 

Apart from Mr Azopardi, the GSD's Roy Clinton and Danny Feetham were also present at the meeting.
