CPAG blog in the Huffington Post

18 February 2013

Child Poverty Action Group's Chief Executive, Alison Garnham, has a blog in the Huffington Post today. She argues the importance of keeping the Child Poverty Act framework to hold the government to account, and the need to retain the cross-party consensus on ending child poverty that was forged when the Act was passed in 2010. 

Also the importance of a broad-based approach, with reduction of income poverty as one of the main goals.

The blog follows the closure of the government's consultation on how to measure child poverty, which has been widely criticised by academic experts, as reported here.
