Finance Bill — New Clause 1 — Childcare provision — 8 Apr 2014 at 19:15
The majority of MPs voted not to require a review of possible changes to the tax and childcare systems aimed at making childcare more affordable.
MPs were considering the Finance Bill. The text of the proposed new clause rejected in this vote was:
- (1) The Chancellor of the Exchequer must undertake a review of ways in which changes to the tax and childcare systems could be used to increase the affordability of childcare before April 2015, with particular reference to—
- (a) the cost of childcare for parents in work; and
- (b) the cost of childcare, including the impact of changes in the tax and benefits system during this Parliament.
- The Chancellor must publish the report of the review within six months of the passing of this Act and lay the report before the House.’
