This report presents the findings of an analysis of responses to the Scottish Government’s consultation on a Child Poverty Bill for Scotland. The consultation ran from the 8th August to the 30th September 2016, and explored respondents views on the Scottish Government’s proposals for a Child Poverty Bill, including:
• Enshrining in legislation an ambition to eradicate child poverty
• Reinstating statutory income-based targets to reduce the number of children living in poverty
• Placing a duty on Scottish Ministers to develop a Child Poverty Delivery Plan, and to report on annually on their progress towards delivering that plan.
