Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill — Second Reading — 26 Oct 2010 at 21:48

Jamie Reed MP, Copeland voted against abolishing child trust funds, the saving gateway scheme and health in pregnancy grants.

The majority of MPs voted to abolish child trust funds, the saving gateway scheme and health in pregnancy grants.

The Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill[1][2] was introduced by Conservative MP Mark Hoban, the Financial Secretary to the Treasury. Mr Hoban explained the Bill does three things[3]:

  • it ends eligibility for child trust funds[4] for children born from January 2011 onwards;
  • it repeals the Saving Gateway Accounts Act 2009, following our decision not to introduce the saving gateway scheme[5]; and
  • it abolishes the health in pregnancy grant[6], again from January 2011.

Technically the vote was on giving a second reading to the Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill ie. to allow it to continue along the path to becoming law.
