Amid everything else that has been happening last week, we’ve had the publication of alarming figures on child poverty. Those figures show that there are 200,000 more children in the country living in poverty.

70% of the (almost) 4M children living in poverty are living in households where people are working. So, this is not just about benefits, it’s also about what people are paid.

Many families who have been switched over the Universal Credit are struggling. I pledge support for a higher minimum wage and proper support for families in work.

None of us should be comfortable with a situation where child poverty is rising in this country.
