§ Mr. Paul Marsden
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many children in Shrewsbury and Atcham he estimates will be taken out of poverty by the end of the present year. 
§ Mr. Bayley
It is not possible to make estimates at a local level of the numbers of children who will be taken out of poverty. However, children in Shrewsbury and Atcham will benefit from the range of measures we have announced which will lift 1.2 million children out of poverty by the end of this Parliament.
