Petition Create a Minister For Poverty responsible for tackling poverty and its causes
It is estimated over 10 million people in the UK are in poverty, and that the effects of poverty cost £78 billion a year. We believe poverty places a central role in inequality in the UK, and that establishing a Minister for Poverty would help tackle poverty and the inequality it can create.
