This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book focuses on the Child Poverty Act (2010) to eliminate child poverty by the year 2020 which has been removed and replaced by a duty to regularly publish the statistics relating to people as a nation in relation to child poverty. The United Kingdom has the fifth highest mortality rate for babies under the age of one year in a survey of 19 European countries. Smoking in pregnancy is more common in the United Kingdom than in many other European countries. In fact, 11 per cent of expectant mums continue to smoke in England, in comparison with five per cent in Sweden. In deprived areas, 40 per cent of children are overweight or obese, whereas the figure is 27 per cent in more affluent areas.
