Udo Bullmann on the European Child Guarantee

Udo Bullmann on the European Child Guarantee, which was put forward by the S&Ds to combat child poverty:

“This week we made progress towards eradicating child poverty in Europe by securing nearly six billion Euros for the European Child Guarantee. One in four children live in poverty or danger of social exclusion. It is shameful that Europe does not even provide for the basic needs of its children. Ending child poverty is the first and most crucial step to reducing inequalities. I am proud that we could defend the Child Guarantee against the resistance of the liberals and some conservatives in this house. For sure, there can be no better investment than investing in our children.”
