Child Maintenance Scheme

EDM number 219 in 2014-15, proposed by John McDonnell on 07/07/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Child support, Children and families and Incomes and poverty.

That this House is deeply concerned about changes to the Child Maintenance scheme; notes that the charging scheme will deter lower income families from claiming and will increase child poverty; recognises that the four per cent now deducted by the Government from the final amount that goes to the child sees the Exchequer profiting at the expense of the child; further notes that the contractor has been unable to cope with call volumes and regrets that the Child Maintenance Options service has been privatised; and urges the Government to bring this work back in-house, to be run by experienced Department for Work and Pensions staff.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
