Child Trust Funds Bill — 15 Dec 2003 at 19:51

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second Time.

I am delighted to bring this Bill before the House. In doing so, the Government are fulfilling a manifesto commitment. The child trust fund represents a new and imaginative way of encouraging children and their parents to save for the future. We will ensure that, in future, all children will have the opportunities that are currently taken for granted by only a few.

Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 297, Noes 39.
