Motion text

That this House believes the increase of 150 in the per child element of child tax credit does not adequately compensate low-income families for the abolition of the Sure Start Maternity Grant, the Health in Pregnancy Grant and the removal of the additional baby element of child tax credit; further believes that these means of financial assistance represent real help for pregnant women and families with young children; further believes that such individuals have been disproportionately targeted by over 3 billion of cuts in support for families, including cuts in child benefit, child tax credits, child trust funds and help for pregnant mothers; and is concerned that the Government's proposals may negatively impact upon child poverty.
