Child Support Agency And Death Of Graham Clay

EDM number 192 in 1993-94, proposed by John Heppell on 07/12/1993.

That this House notes with deep concern the death of Graham Clay, Head Guide at Newstead Abbey, who was found hanged there the day after receiving correspondence from the Child Support Agency informing him his ú100 per month maintenance payments, which had been fixed by local magistrates, were to increase to ú300 per month; expresses its sympathy for all his family; further recognises that many other people have already received similar demands and will continue to do so; and therefore asks that the activities of the Child Support Agency be restricted to tracing those who have no arrangements with the courts, until such time as the recommendations of the Social Security Select Committee can be considered and procedures can be put in place to ensure that the Child Support Agency's narrow formula is abandoned and proper assessment is made of people's ability to pay.

This motion has been signed by a total of 61 MPs.
