Govt lacking interest in child poverty statistics - advocates

From Checkpoint, 5:17 pm on 22 February 2024

Advocates are sounding the alarm over the government's approach to ending poverty saying it is lacking any real interest in the problem.

Child poverty statistics released today found tens of thousands more children are going without household essentials.

But the Minister for Child Poverty Reduction says the coalition's focus on reducing the cost of living will help bring those numbers down.
