John Dickie, Director of Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) in Scotland said:
“Every party leader should be alarmed by increasing child poverty and the devastating damage it does to children’s wellbeing, education, life chances and the wider economy. As a compassionate country the top priority for whoever forms the next UK Government must be to invest in children's benefits and put in place a UK-wide child poverty strategy.”
