So much for the families package being transformational for poverty

Data is here.

Labour claimed their families package would be trasnformational and make a huge difference to poverty.

Well the data out this week shows the number of households in “poverty” (low income) is the same in 2019 as it was in 2016 and the number of households that are materially deprived is higher in 2019 than 2016. Basically the changes between 2018 and 2019 are of the same magnitude as occurs most years.
