Submission by the Budget Justice Coalition in response to the 2019 Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS)

The 2019 MTBPS shows that government is choosing to deepen budget Austerity.

The 2019 MTBPS shows that government is choosing to deepen budget Austerity. Taking an intersectional feminist approach, the Budget Justice Coalition undertakes a budget analysis which demonstrates that austerity has negative implications for human rights. The BJC calls on the government to stop its regressive spending plans (austerity) proposed in the MTBPS and proposes solutions.
