answer text <p>The Government has shown it is committed to reducing geographical, wealth and generational inequality. It will continue to consider such issues when making public spending allocations.</p><p> </p><p>A key priority for this government is to make sure the economy works for the whole country, not just certain parts. In the latest year, the economy grew fastest in the North West, the number of people in work grew fastest in the South West and unemployment fell fastest in Scotland. Looking ahead, the Government is developing an industrial strategy to drive productivity, create jobs, and ensure sustainable economic growth across the country.</p><p> </p><p>Our increases to the National Minimum Wage rate will benefit younger people, as will our actions to help young people get on the housing ladder. Income inequality is now lower now than it was in 2010, and the share of total income tax paid by the top 1% is 27%.</p> more like this
