Child poverty figures reveal Tories are failing most vulnerable

by Steve Beasant on 24 January, 2018

Commenting on the report from the End Child Poverty coalition revealing that in some areas of the UK more than half of children are living in poverty, Layla Moran MP said:

“This is an appalling indictment of a Tory Party that are failing to protect the most vulnerable in society.

“The gulf between children born in the richest and poorest families is widening, but Theresa May is more preoccupied with the gulf in her cabinet over Brexit.

“When we fail our children like this we fail as a society. The government must take action.”
