Motion text

That this House recognises that charges on the Child Maintenance Service Collect and Pay service are preventing parents and children from accessing maintenance; accepts that domestic abuse survivors are most at need of a Government service to help ensure maintenance is paid without contact between former partners, yet are among the worst affected by barriers created by charges; understands that research by Gingerbread has found that around one in four receiving parents claim domestic violence is a reason for not setting up an arrangement with the Child Maintenance Service after their case with the Child Support Agency had closed; and calls for the Government to scrap Collect and Pay charges for survivors of domestic violence.
