Poverty, Parenting Stress, Separation And Multiple Birth Families

EDM number 1090 in 2009-10, proposed by Mark Williams on 15/03/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Children and families.

That this House notes the findings of the Twins and Multiple Birth Association's report on the effects of multiple births on their families and their living standards undertaken by Professor Stephen McKay; is concerned that this review of Government datasets shows that multiple birth families are poorer than other families, face barriers accessing appropriate childcare, find it more difficult raising their children and that a higher proportion of relationships end in separation; and calls on the Government to consider increasing the amount of support these families receive during pregnancy, birth and in the early years as a matter of urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 38 MPs.
