No country that loves its children can allow this to continue – Steve Reed comments on Children’s Commissioner’s Report

Steve Reed MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children, commenting on the Children’s Commissioner’s annual Child Vulnerability Report, said:

“The government is allowing 2.3 million children to grow up in crisis, including those facing abuse. Instead of promising multi-billion-pound tax cuts for the rich, the Conservative leadership contenders need to do more about the millions of children whose childhoods are being destroyed.

“No country that loves its children can allow this to continue. The government has ignored vulnerable children for too long – today’s important report must be a wake-up call and lead to radical change.”
