Joseph Rowntree Foundation Audit On Poverty

EDM number 61 in 2010-12, proposed by Bob Russell on 25/05/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Incomes and poverty.

That this House registers its dismay that an audit undertaken by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation shows that poverty is at the same level as it was in 2000, with two million children in low-income households, unemployment at a 12-year high and repossessions at six times the level of 2004; and urges the Government to pursue policies to eradicate poverty and promote equality.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
