Statistics on two-child limit – Margaret Greenwood responds

Margaret Greenwood MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to statistics related to the government’s two-child policy, said:

“The two child limit is a cruel policy that punishes children.

“These figures destroy the Tories’ claim that this is about fairness, as nearly 60 per cent of the families hit by the two child limit are in work.

“Every child matters. Labour will make tackling child poverty the priority it should be.”
