Which act helped who? How have the Liberal reforms directly affected your life? Mr Rawlings' Thought for the Day:

Do we do enough today to give people a fair chance in life? Opinion line - the poor need help in order to give them a fair chance in life. The Budget was introduced in the British Parliament by David Lloyd George on 29 April 1909.[2] Lloyd George argued that the People's Budget would eliminate poverty, and commended it thus:

This is a war Budget. It is for raising money to wage implacable warfare against poverty and squalidness. I cannot help hoping and believing that before this generation has passed away, we shall have advanced a great step towards that good time, when poverty, and the wretchedness and human degradation which always follows in its camp, will be as remote to the people of this country as the wolves which once infested its forests".[ “These problems of the sick, the infirm, of the men who cannot find... a livelihood are problems with which it is the business of the state to deal.”
