The broken child poverty pledge

16 Nov 2015, by in Society & Welfare

I have a post at politics.co.uk, (written on behalf of the End Child Poverty coalition) looking at the Welfare Reform and Work Bill – if passed, it will mean the government no longer has to report to Parliament on progress helping children out of poverty. This will mean that there will be no point at which the government has to defend progress on issues liked the number of children in working families who are poor – ECP research shows that this figure has grown by 300,000 since 2010. That’s why End Child Poverty has launched a Money Matters campaign calling on the government to keep measuring child poverty – money matters and we need to make sure families have enough.
