MPs Urged to Support Family as Study Finds UK a ‘World Leader’ in Broken Homes

Politicians have been urged to support the traditional family, as a report revealed that children from broken homes had double the rate of mental illness, poverty, or getting into trouble with law enforcement.

In a study which laid the “devastating impacts” of family breakdown bare, the Centre for Social Justice (CJS) blasted “political paralysis” on issues concerning the family, commenting that MPs’ “silence” on the matter “often stems from a fear of sounding judgemental or moralising”.

“Family breakdown is not simply an inevitable consequence of modern society,” the report said, pointing out that while Britain was “fast becoming a world leader” in the phenomenon, with only two-thirds of British under-15s living with both parents, the picture was much brighter in other OECD countries.
