Child Poverty

Put that the Government was not going to meet its 2010 target on reducing child poverty, the PMS said that the Government remained absolutely committed to the promise which had been made in halving child poverty by 2010, on the way to eradicating it by 2020. We obviously recognised that this was an ambitious target but it was right that it should be so.

Asked if the Government recognised that it was not going to meet the target, the PMS said that we had recognised that the policy was challenging but it was right that it should be so and we were fully committed to maintaining the levels which had been set out.
