More than 200 people packed into Hackney Town Hall to join councillors and social policy experts to debate inequality in the borough. The event - Tackling Inequalities in a Changing Borough – was open to all residents and interested parties, who were invited to discuss how changes in the borough have impacted employment, poverty and community cohesion. The debate, on 24 November, was hosted by the Council’s Community Safety Social Inclusion Scrutiny Commission. Its Chair, Cllr Carole Williams, invited Alison Garnham, Chief Executive of Child Poverty Action Group; Graham Cooke, a specialist in jobs and skills welfare; Bill Kerry, of The Equality Trust and Deputy Mayor Cllr Sophie Linden, to talk before taking questions from the audience. Housing topped the agenda, with audience members and panellists alike calling for rent controls in the private rented sector. Bill Kerry went on to discuss the role of financial equality in social cohesion. He said: “Workers paid the national minimum wage would have to work for 342 years to earn the average annual pay of a FTSE 100 CEO.” He went on to acknowledge that councils’ powers are limited and that some spending allocation was out of their control, but said: “Hackney should consider …adopting a goal that the net impact of our spending policies will be to reduce the gap between the richest and the rest of the borough.” Graham Cooke talked about the importance of local schemes – like the Council’s Ways into Work scheme – in helping the long term unemployed back into the work place and the social benefits of work, while Alison Garnham highlighted the challenges the borough faces around child poverty. She said that two thirds of poor children comes from working families and said that welfare cuts had had a disproportionate effect on them. “Two parents earning the minimum wages only earn 82% of the cost of raising a child,” she explained.
