Child Maintenance Service

The following is an extract from the winding-up speech given by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Welfare Delivery on 18 April 2017 in the Westminster Hall debate on the Child Maintenance Service.

I am very conscious that some non-resident parents hide assets and income within the bank accounts of other family members. We desperately need to address such abuses, which will form part of our arrears strategy, which we will publish later in the spring, notwithstanding my earlier comment about this morning’s announcement.

Letter of correction from Caroline Nokes:

An error has been identified in my closing speech. The correct statement should have been:

I am very conscious that some non-resident parents hide assets and income within the bank accounts of other family members. We desperately need to address such abuses, which will form part of our arrears strategy, which we will publish later in the year, notwithstanding my earlier comment about this morning’s announcement.
