Child poverty fix not quick but doable

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 27 October 2017

The Children's Commissioner and community groups say they're excited to see how the new government plans to reduce child poverty - but question how quickly it can be done. During the election campaign Labour said it would lift 100,000 children out of poverty by 2020. The new Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has taken on the role of Minister for Child Poverty Reduction and New Zealand First's Tracey Martin is the new Minister of Children who will oversee Oranga Tamariki, the Ministry for Vulnerable Children.
