Gov Early Day Motion (EDM) – #wco Equality (EDM 0034: BENEFITS SYSTEM AND SHARED PARENTING)

by

Sanders, Adrian raised an interesting point.

Subject(s): Equality; Childcare; Money; NRP Rights; Parenting

That this House notes that child benefit can only be paid to one parent; further notes that this unnecessarily discriminates against the other parent where parents are separated and maintain shared custody of children; further notes that this can further discriminate against one parent by preventing access to suitable housing and additional income to allow them to provide for children; further notes that this can lead to restricted access for one parent to see their children; and calls on the Government to take action to address these problems.
