HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c874W
Mr. Tom Harris

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many families with children in Glasgow, Cathcart constituency have moved out of poverty since 1 May 1997. [58876]

Malcolm Wicks

Poverty is a complex multidimensional issue, affecting many aspects of children's lives—including income, health, housing, the quality of their environment and opportunities to learn. There is therefore no single measure of the number of families with children that have moved out of poverty in the Glasgow, Cathcart constituency.
