Children's Rights: Motion [Private Members]
A point of order is normally taken and the person who made the charges is asked to withdraw them. I do not know whether the Acting Chairman, Deputy Connolly, intends to do so, but it should certainly be done. We have brought forward the motion in good faith. We want to see a focus on child poverty now that we have recovered financially from the economic crash. Most people did not expect the country to recover from it. There were much more serious cuts in other countries. We protected budgets as far as we could and are proud to be members of the Labour Party with our values and ideals.
