Abstract

In 2017, the Scottish Parliament unanimously passed legislation to introduce statutory targets in order to reduce child poverty and create a new Poverty and Inequality Commission in Scotland. By 2030, the Scottish government will be under a legal obligation to meet four new targets, including to reduce relative child poverty down to 10 per cent.
