Child Support Agency — 17 Jan 2006 at 18:46

Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted with the majority (No).

I beg to move,

That this House agrees with the Prime Minster that the Child Support Agency has lost the confidence of the public, that its basic structural problems remain and that it is not properly suited to carry out its task.

I beg to move, To leave out from "House" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:

"agrees with the Prime Minister that the Child Support Agency suffers from basic structural problems and is not properly suited to carrying out its current tasks; accepts the importance of ensuring that more families with children receive the maintenance payments to which they are entitled; and notes that the Government will shortly set out its conclusions on the right way forward following the Chief Executive's review of the operation of the Child Support Agency."

The House having divided: Ayes 69, Noes 306.
