Pregnancy And Baby Payments To Offset Tory Austerity In Scotland

It’s clearly still a disgrace that we have such levels of poverty in one of the world’s most affluent countries. We saw in the last budget, the lack of concern for the poor in the current UK government, in the recent budget, as they used wealth that could have reduced poverty to, instead, reduce taxation on middle and upper-earners. That poverty is less common in Scotland seems due in large part to Scottish government initiatives. This has been confirmed in a report from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
