Social Fund Maternity Grant Amendment Regulations 2011 — Motion to Resolve — 7 Mar 2011 at 20:54
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.
