Context: Building on our first debate, what are the abiding lessons learned so far from the crisis, and what will be the consequences for the long-term health and welfare of our nations? How will we tackle the stresses of unemployment, business failures, loss of time at school, mental health? What will be the priorities for spending and investment by public sectors facing financial perils? Where can the voluntary and charity sectors best contribute to recovery?
The well balanced panel, chaired by Jimmy Burns OBE , offered facts, insights, and views about what is happening in both countries and lessons learnt about key issues.
Feedback from the audience:
