Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - It is an outrage that child poverty remains such a pressing issue in 21st-century Europe. My own country Scotland, which is rich in natural resources, has disgraceful levels of child poverty – whilst the UK government in London remains committed to such wasteful and inhumane projects as the renewal of the Trident missile system. Fortunately the Scottish Government is committed to using such powers as they currently have to tackling child poverty issues. Only last week the Scottish Education Secretary announced a scheme to provide free school meals to children in their first three years at school, a welcome move in the current economic circumstances. This move will help in the fight against child poverty; so much more will be done when an Independent Scotland has full control over the nation's finances.
