Steve Reed responds to Buttle UK report on children growing up in poverty

Commenting on the Buttle UK report on children growing up in poverty, Labour’s shadow minister for children Steve Reed MP said:

“Millions of children across our country are growing up stuck in poverty thanks to Conservative cuts to local authorities and social security.

“No society that loves its children can treat them like this. The Government must learn lessons from this powerful report and make Britain’s children their priority rather than tax cuts for the super-rich.

“The next Labour Government will end the cuts and invest in children’s services like Sure Start to ensure the next generation get the best start in life.”
