Inequality In Poverty Reduction

EDM number 471 in 2014-15, proposed by Martin Horwood on 04/11/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Incomes and poverty, International development and World economy.

That this House notes Oxfam's latest report entitled Even it up: Time to end extreme inequality; further notes that the report highlights that, in 2013, seven out of 10 people lived in countries where economic inequality is worse than 30 years ago; further notes that the report states that extreme inequality is a barrier to poverty reduction, that economic inequality hurts everyone, and that it drives inequalities in health, education and life chances while compounding inequality between women and men; recognises that poverty and inequality are not inevitable but the result of policy choices; understands that a diverse range of people and organisations, from Pope Francis to the International Monetary Fund, are speaking out on the issue of inequality; further recognises the need for further discussions; welcomes the call from Oxfam that, with the right political and economic choices, this House can help reduce extreme economic inequality; further notes the recommendations in the report; and wishes Oxfam continued success with its campaign.

This motion has been signed by a total of 44 MPs.
