Britain is "sleepwalking towards the highest levels of child poverty" since records began, a charity chief has said.
Save the Children chief executive Justin Forsyth said:
The current all-party commitments to social security cuts in the next parliament combined with underlying labour market trends and inflation mean no party has a coherent plan to avoid this crisis.
Our political class is sleepwalking towards the highest levels of child poverty since records began while promising to eradicate it completely.
It's time our politicians face the scale of the crisis head-on and each party set out a concrete plan to get us back on track ahead of the general election.
