- What will they do to make ending child poverty a national priority?
- Will they develop, fund and implement a long-term plan to end child poverty?

- Will they protect families from rising living costs by restoring the value of children’s benefits?
- What will they do to tackle soaring childcare costs pricing parents out of work?
