income inequality and relative poverty

-in edexcel's unit 5 june 2003, there was one question asking how NMW is effective in tackling poverty while the other question asked if income distribution in the UK has become more equal. since passage is on NMW, for the second part do we have to talk about NMW's effect on income distribution - but isn;t that the same as its effect on relative poverty?, as in the first question.

From what you say I'm not sure entirely of the questions. But, I seem to remember marking those questions. But, if it is relevant you may find yourself repeating SOME ideas between different parts, but it doesn't happen that often. In this case income distribution and relative poverty are very closely related. Basically greater income inequality is very likely to increase relative poverty.
