The explanatory notes to the Bill explain the purpose of that clause:
- The Bill also removes entitlement to the health in pregnancy grant where a woman reaches the 25th week of her pregnancy on or after 1st January 2011.
- The health in pregnancy grant was introduced in April 2009; it is a lump sum payment to almost all expectant women, made once they satisfy prescribed conditions as to the stage of their pregnancy, having received appropriate maternal health advice from health professionals.
