Exclusive_16Hot on the heels of Greg Clark’s intervention of yesterday, this is what David Cameron will say tomorrow:

“I want to look back over the last 25 years and to look forward to the next 25.  Let me summarise my argument briefly.  I believe that poverty is an economic waste, a moral disgrace.  In the past we used to think of poverty in absolute terms – meaning straightforward material deprivation.  That’s not enough.  We need to think of poverty in relative terms – the fact that some people lack those things which others in society take for granted.  So I want this message to go out loud and clear: the Conservative Party recognises, will measure and will act on relative poverty.”
