Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the cost of the additional payments into child trust funds for disabled children which are proposed in the 2009 Budget for each of the years 2010–11 and 2011–12. [HL3053]

The cost of making payments to the child trust fund accounts of disabled children of £100 per year, with £200 per year to the accounts of severely disabled children, is £15 million in 2010-11 and £15 million in 2011-12. For 2011-12 costs are included within the spending growth assumption for 2011-12 onwards. Allocations of spending within this assumption will be announced in the next spending review.
