Key dates – Monday 8 August to Friday 30 September

This consultation sets our proposals for a Child Poverty Bill for Scotland that will:

  • Enshrine in legislation the Scottish Government’s ambition to eradicate child poverty.
  • Place a duty on Scottish Ministers to publish a Child Poverty Delivery Plan every 5 years, and to report on that Plan annually.
  • Set statutory income targets.
