Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill — Second Reading — 26 Oct 2010 at 21:48
The majority of MPs voted to abolish child trust funds, the saving gateway scheme and health in pregnancy grants.
- it ends eligibility for child trust funds 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; and
- it abolishes the health in pregnancy grant, 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.
