Summary
In March 1999 the Government made the commitment to "eradicate" child poverty in the United Kingdom by 2020. Interim targets were not met. The Bill fulfils the Government's commitment made in Sep. 2008 to enshrine the 2020 child poverty target in legislation. it establishes four separate child poverty targets to be met by 2020/01, requires the UK Government to publish a regular UK child poverty strategy, requires the Scottish and Northern Irish ministers to publish child poverty strategies, establishes a Child Poverty Commission to provide advice, requires the UK Government to publish annual progress reprts, and places new duties on local authorities and other "delivery partners" in England to work together to tackle child poverty
