Motion text

That this House welcomes Save the Children's recent report, Britain's Poorest Children Revisited; notes with extreme concern the findings that one million children in Great Britain live in severe and persistent poverty; further notes that additional action is needed if the Government is to meet its targets and if disadvantaged young people are to be given opportunities to fulfil their full potential; and urges the Government to measure the number of children living in severe and persistent poverty and commit to a strategy that explicitly targets these children, who may number up to one million.
