Conservative Party Conference

Posted: October 4, 2010 by orlandoayli in news, Pupil, TF

The Conservative Party conference began Saturday 3rd October 2010 in Birmingham .
David Cameron, the prime minster, is leader of the conservative party and George Osborne is the chancellor.
The conservative party conference is going to last a week.
The leaders have announced so far public spending cuts with higher earners to lose child benefit , and private firms could be encouraged to set up factories in prisons.

  1. Bernard says:

    Factories in prisons – I think that sounds really interesting. Is it taking advantage of people serving sentences? or is it giving them the positive experience of taking pride in one’s work? How many people value their job for more than just the financial rewards it bestows on them?

  2. Aleunam says:

    I have been following the story about the cuts to child benefit in the news, but did you know that poor families are going to be hit hardest by all these cuts. Although the government says that it is going to make sure the poorest families don’t lose the child benefit, what is not making the top new stories is the effect the cut in housing benefit and the cap on benefits over all will have on unemployed families, people with disabilities, single parent families and so forth. Housing costs in central London are much higher than in outer London and many poorer people will need to move house once the housing benefit is capped because they will not be able to afford the rent.
