Labour renew commitment to action on child poverty

6 June 2013

The Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband, made a major speech on social security, in which he renewed his commitment to child poverty reduction as a top priority for a future Labour administration.

We responded by welcoming this commitment, and welcoming the focus on the root causes of poverty, such as poverty pay and sky-high rents, which also put pressure on the social security budget.
