Yesterday’s Child Maintenance Service Debate

19th April 2017

Yesterday I led a debate on the Child Maintenance Service.

The UK Government is failing single parents and their children who rely on CMS. And some, even victims of domestic abuse, are being charged simply for accessing their legal rights.

Unfortunately Theresa May’s announcement of a General Election came just 15 minutes before the debate started. Before now and the dissolution of Parliament, the Tories must get on with their day job and take urgent action to overhaul the child maintenance system.
