Child Poverty and Inequality

01 Jul 2015
Ms Diane Abbott (Hackney North and Stoke Newington) (Lab): 
The Secretary of State has announced that he will report on measures of worklessness and educational attainment. Will he take care to make sure that those figures are broken down by race and ethnicity, because there are complex factors at work? It is not necessarily the case that all groups of black children do worse than all groups of white children. Although we might disagree on the remedies, without sound data we cannot plan to help all of our children.

Mr Duncan Smith (The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions): I give the hon. Lady that absolute assurance.
