Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Children's Minister, commenting ahead of a speech by Edward Timpson on care leavers said:

"It is simply not good enough for Ministers to blame poor outcomes for care leavers on those children, their carers or councils. The last Labour Government introduced the Children (Leaving Care) Act to give young people real power over their own lives. This Government has systematically stripped away support for young people and the Tory-led Government must be willing to take responsibility not just criticise others."
