UN rapporteur starts UK tour to examine impact of austerity | Business | The Guardian
A United Nations special investigator is launching a two-week inquiry into rising levels of poverty and hardship across the UK, saying he hopes the government is ready for proper dialogue over the human consequences of austerity cuts. [...] His inquiry will assess whether government policies introduced in recent years breach international human rights standards to which the UK is a signatory, including the rights to food, housing and decent living standards. He will also try to assess the impact of Brexit on poverty.

“The United Kingdom is one of the richest countries in the world, but millions of people are still living in poverty there,” he said.
