Abolishing the domicile rule could have paid for this

The Guardian has reported that:

Child poverty in Britain has increased for the second year in a row, government figures revealed yesterday, putting Labour's target to halve it by the end of the decade in jeopardy.

The estimated cost of getting on track now is £2.7 billion a year. That could have been raised by completely abolsihing the domicile rule rather than amending it.

Another New Labour opportunity lost.
