Poverty: Children

Volume 485: debated on Monday 15 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (1) how many and what percentage of children in each age group in (a) Bexleyheath and Crayford constituency and (b) the London Borough of Bexley were living in absolute poverty in each year since 1997; (241375)

(2) what his Department's latest estimate is of the number of disabled children living below the poverty line in (a) Bexleyheath and Crayford and (b) the London Borough of Bexley in each of the last 10 years.

The information requested is not available.

Our child poverty statistics, published in the Households Below Average Income series, only allow a breakdown of the number of children in relative or absolute poverty at Government office region level or for inner or outer London. Information is therefore not available at parliamentary constituency or local authority level.
