CHILD POVERTY AGREEMENT
As previously stated I consider that that particular member should be withdrawn from the Mayor elections. The Salvation Army strongly supports the call from Children’s Commissioner Judge Andrew Becroft for cross-party agreement on efforts to reduce child poverty.
The Commissioner’s call for political parties to work toward an agreed way of measuring child poverty and then to set clear goals for reducing that poverty is something that clearly needs to be done.
Such a cross-party agreement would indicate a strong commitment by political parties to making a real impact on the continuing unacceptable levels of child poverty in New Zealand.
