Last night I attended a very interesting meeting at Portcullis house with Iain Duncan-Smith MP and Debbie Scott, of Tomorrows People, who are the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Social Justice Policy Group. This group has been set up by David Cameron to look into the party’s policies towards the least well off in society.
This has bee a personal campaign for IDS for years and the policy group is based around the Centre for Social Justice (IDS’s personal think tank). The CSJ has been working behind the scenes and building up some very strong links with community groups, faith groups and charities.
The meeting gave a number of London Conservatives a real insight into ways in which we can help the real disadvantaged at a local level.
I am going to DC’s speech on social justice tomorrow and I will let you know my thoughts.
