Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill — Clause 2 — Repeal of Saving Gateway Accounts Act 2009 — 22 Nov 2010 at 19:45

The majority of MPs voted to scrap the Saving Gateway Account scheme.

MPs were debating the Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill[1]. The amendment voted on and rejected was:

  • page 2, line 9, leave out Clause 2.

This would have removed the Clause[2] from the bill which was titled Repeal of Saving Gateway Accounts Act 2009.

The explanatory notes to the Bill[3] explain what the accounts were to be:

  • The Saving Gateway was to be a tax-free cash saving account available to people in receipt of qualifying social security or tax credit awards. At the end of the two year maturity period for a Saving Gateway account, the Government would have made a contribution for each pound that had been saved. Saving Gateway accounts were due to have been available from July 2010.

The explanatory notes go on to state:
