Child poverty is a problem for working families rather than those who are unemployed or "workshy", Alan Miliburn, chair of the social mobility and child poverty commission established by the coalition government said today.
His comments come as the commission releases their first annual report into social mobility and child poverty. He said:
"Today child poverty is a problem for working families rather than the workless or the workshy.
"Two-thirds of kids officially deemed poor in this country are in a family where someone is in work."
