Child Care Tax Credit

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many parents were claiming child care tax credit in respect of children aged (a) between four and 11 and (b) over 11 years old in each of the last three years. (257386)

The information requested is available only at a disproportionate cost.

However, estimates of the number of families, by age group of children, benefiting from the child care element of working tax credit at selected dates, are published in table 4.4 of the HMRC publication “Child and Working Tax Credits Statistics” for each year. These publications are available on the HMRC website at:
