Budget does not go far enough to end child poverty

The Budget failed to go far enough for the 4 million children living in poverty in the UK. Whilst the increase in Child Tax Credit is welcomed by UNICEF UK, the Budget will not help decrease the numbers of children growing up in poverty.

UNICEF UK spokesperson, Senay Camgoz, said:"The current economic difficulties facing Britain should not be used as an excuse for failing children. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child places a duty on the Government to commit the 'maximum extent of their available resources' to enable all children to have a decent standard of living in order to fulfill their potential".

"Ending child poverty is not only a moral imperative. The annual cost to Britain of not ending child poverty is estimated to be £25 billion."
