At his Sunday press briefing, Prime Minister Sánchez announced that 255,000 people in 75,000 households will receive the Spanish government's new minimum living income on 26 June. More than half of the beneficiaries, he said, will be minors. The government calculates that this benefit will eventually reach 850,000 households and 2.3 million people, 30% of whom will be minors. It is a measure, stressed the prime minister, "in the fight against child poverty".
