In this Dragons' Den style event the audience and resident dragons will be able to quiz the panel before the audience cast their vote for their favourite policy reform.
Despite considerable government intervention during the Covid-19 pandemic incomes have fallen, and problem debt has increased. Families with children have been particularly hard hit with 4.5 million living in families that are using consumer credit to make ends meet. During this session each of our expert panel will have 5 minutes to draw on their evidence and expertise to pitch their proposals for policy reforms which respond to the current crisis.
