Abstract

The chancellor claimed that the public service cuts outlined in the Comprehensive Spending Review would be based on fairness and that cuts would be shared equally in an attempt to protect the most vulnerable in our society.

With 9 out of 10 single parent families headed by women, Amy Mollett examines how poor mothers stand to lose the most when services are cut
