statistics on children born out of wedlock

Asked about ONS statistics showing the number of children born out of wedlock, the PMS said the PM was a big believer in marriage and that all families bringing up children needed support. Asked whether a marriage tax allowance could reverse the trend, the PMS said there were 2 points to make. Firstly, the PM was a big believer in marriage. Secondly, that bringing up children is incredibly tough and all families need support. The government has implemented a number of measures to support all families including investments in childcare and cost of living measures such as keeping council tax down, scrapping fuel duty rises, reductions in rail fair increases and an increase in the personal allowance threshold which has taken two million people out of income tax.
