Poverty centre stage on the national agenda

Many thanks to Laura Tingle, President of the National Press Club and Chief Political Correspondent for 7.30 for the invitation and her kind endorsement when the recording was available: “This was a refreshingly intelligent bit of discussion about the economic fallout of the pandemic. Absolutely should be watched.”
