Proposed Child Poverty Bill


The Scottish Government are seeking views on proposals for a Child Poverty Bill. The deadline for responses is 30th September 2016. The Bill will provide a framework for action and ways to hold the Government to account for their efforts in tackling poverty. The proposals include:

  • Enshrining in legislation the ambition to eradicate child poverty
  • Reinstating statutory income-based targets to reduce the number of children living in poverty (previously abandoned by the UK government)
  • Placing a duty on Scottish Ministers to develop a Child Poverty Delivery Plan, and to report annually on their progress towards delivering it.
