I, in collaboration with the Deputy Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, wish to inform the House of the publication of the annual report by the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission State of the Nation: Social Mobility and Child Poverty in Great Britain.

The report sets out the views of the Commission on the progress made toward the goals of improving social mobility and reducing child poverty in the United Kingdom. It also includes a description of the measures that have been taken by the Devolved Administrations in Scotland and Wales.

The Government welcomes the report and the Commission’s contribution to these important issues. We will consider their recommendations and our response in due course.

The report will be laid in Parliament and published later today. The report will be available at www.Gov.uk/SMCPC
