Intergenerational Fairness Forum meetings in Parliament 2016
Baroness (Sally) Greengross is chairing a Forum meeting on Wednesday 9 March 2016, from 3.30-5pm in Committee Room 3 of the House of Lords to discuss the issues raised by the House of Commons Work and Pensions Select Committee inquiry into intergenerational fairness. Stephen Burke, Director of United for All Ages, will be speaking about the key issues raised in a paper, Fairness for All Ages, they published (February 2016) in order to kickstart a general discussion about the issues which the Select Committee should take into account as they take oral evidence for their inquiry into intergenerational fairness. We hope this meeting will be particularly helpful for any Forum members called to give oral evidence to the Committee for its inquiry. The United for All Ages paper features contributions from 20 national organisations and sets out 20 radical ideas for action to address intergenerational inequity. Anybody wishing to attend this meeting should contact the Forum’s secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7222 1265). Guests are welcome, but capacity in the Parliamentary meetings rooms is limited so it is essential to reserve a place.
Would Mandatory Voting in the UK result in greater intergenerational fairness in public policy?
The Forum’s next meeting thereafter will take place from 3.30-5pm on Wednesday 18 May when we will be discussing whether the introduction of mandatory voting in the UK would result in greater intergenerational fairness in public policy. Lord Willetts, Executive Chair of the Resolution Foundation, and the polling expert, Professor John Curtice of Strathclyde University, will be the guest speakers at this meeting. Anybody wishing to attend this meeting should contact the Forum’s secretariat (email@example.com or 020 7222 1265). Guests are welcome, but capacity in the Parliamentary meetings rooms is limited so it is essential to reserve a place.
