Only four out of the twenty members of the Knesset's Finance Committee attended a meeting to discuss the poverty report on Tuesday, Israel Radio reported.
The attendees included Labor MKs Shelly Yacimovich and Avishai Braverman. Kadima and Shas had no representatives at the meeting.
Shas MK Amnon Cohen said he did not come to the meeting because he was tired of talking about poverty and was waiting instead for action.
