Poverty Truth Commission engages Ed Miliband

AS part of a continuing conversation with political and civic leaders across the spectrum, Labour leader Ed Miliband was made aware of the work of the Poverty Truth Commission in Scotland when he spoke in Glasgow at the end of last month.

At the question and answer session after the high-profile gathering, which looked at both constitutional and social issues, PTC Commissioner Tricia McConalogue, coordinator of Bridging the Gap invited the Westminster opposition leader to ensure that people living in poverty would be involved shaping and delivering anti-poverty policy. 

Mr Miliband received a copy of the Poverty Truth Commission report after the meeting on 30 January 2012. It is hoped that further engagement will follow.
