Social Fund Maternity Grant Amendment Regulations 2011 — Motion to Resolve — 7 Mar 2011 at 20:54
Lord Prescott voted in the minority (Content).
Moved By Lord Touhig
To move to resolve that this House regrets that Her Majesty's Government have laid before Parliament the Social Fund Maternity Grant Amendment Regulations 2011 (SI 2011/100) at unnecessary speed and without providing more information on the impact on new mothers and children in low-income families; and notes with concern that the regulations will remove funds from some of the poorest families during the crucial early months of a child's life.
Relevant document: 20th Report from the Merits Committee.
