Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: New Clause 5 - Review of impact on childcare costs (28 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Catherine McKinnell: ...first year of a newborn’s life. There is also a new analysis of the households below average income statistics, which were published earlier this year and show that, under this Government, families with children have seen the biggest falls in income relative to those without children. I point the hon. Member for Colchester to the promises made in both the Conservative and the Liberal...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 68 - Regulations: general (28 October 2014)

Priti Patel: ...support will be provided, should be subject to the affirmative rather than the negative procedure. Clause 70 defines various terms in the Bill, including “commissioners”, “HMRC” and “tax credits”. Clause 71 enables regulations to amend primary or secondary legislation when the Treasury considers it necessary or expedient to do so as a result of the...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 73 - Extent (28 October 2014)

Priti Patel: ...amendments 31 and 32, which amend clause 73, makes a small but important change to the rules that will help to ensure that the scheme is used as intended. The new clause places a requirement on childminder agencies to provide information to HMRC in connection with its responsibilities for running the scheme. Childminder agencies were introduced earlier this year by the Children and...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 50 - Power to charge interest (28 October 2014)

Priti Patel: ...scheme. Clause 50 allows HMRC to charge interest on overdue scheme debts at normal HMRC rates. Clause 51 allows HMRC to offset the associated amount repayable under the scheme against the backdated tax credit award when parents win a tax credit review or appeal. That gives parents the right level of support from the start and avoids making them go into debt when there is no need for them...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 31 - Power to disqualify tax credit claimants from obtaining top-up payments (28 October 2014)

Priti Patel: ...your chairmanship, Mrs Main. Clauses 31 to 33 put in place safeguards against cases where a person may seek to abuse the scheme. We want to ensure that parents can receive the support with their child care costs that best suits their circumstances in as straightforward a manner as possible. That will include cases where a family’s circumstances change, as the hon. Lady said, such...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 34 - Recovery of top-up payments where tax credits award made on a review (28 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Lucy Powell: ...final day of the Committee, Mrs Main. We have only a few issues to raise regarding clauses 34 to 37, which outline how top-up payments will be recovered in a number of circumstances relating to tax credits and universal credit. I want to take the opportunity to raise again some of the important issues we discussed last week relating to the information that is to be made available to...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 30 - Power to provide for automatic termination of universal credit (23 October 2014)

Catherine McKinnell: The clause makes the same provisions as set out in clause 29, but with respect to universal credit rather than tax credits. We appreciate that universal credit has some way to go before it is rolled out beyond its current pilot areas, but the clause allows for regulations to provide for the automatic termination of a person’s universal credit award, or that of their partner, where that...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 29 - Termination of tax credit awards (23 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Alex Cunningham: The core purpose of this group of amendments is to broaden the provisions of the Bill to allow households in receipt of tax credits, but not receiving any support whatever for their child care costs in their tax credit award, to receive support from the tax-free child care scheme. Achieving that goal would entail several minor changes to the clauses dealing with the special rules affecting...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 15 - Childcare accounts (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Priti Patel: ...stakeholders on the design. That is incredibly important. We do not want parents to feel that they have done something wrong; on the contrary, it is a positive mechanism to provide financial support for child care for their children. We are clear about that, and it is worth concentrating on the terminology and language we use here. It is about being positive and open. Having one login and...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 14 - Qualifying child (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Alex Cunningham: I beg to move amendment 17, in clause 14, page 8, line 36, at end insert— ‘( ) A child is a qualifying child for the purposes of this Act until the last day of the week in which falls the 1 September following the child’s 11th birthday (or 18th birthday in the case of a disabled child).’ It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship,...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 12 - The person and his or her partner must not be in a relevant childcare scheme (21 October 2014)

Catherine McKinnell: ...the passing of this Act. (b) a statutory instrument containing an order under paragraph (a) shall be accompanied by a report which details— (i) a comparative analysis of the beneficiaries of top-up payments versus other relevant childcare schemes; (ii) what additional package of measures will be enacted to raise awareness and understanding of the comparative benefits of relevant...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 11 - Neither the person nor his or her partner may be claiming universal credit. (21 October 2014) See 6 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: Clause 11 sets out the sixth condition of eligibility, which is that the person and their partner, if they have one, cannot be claiming universal credit. The clause provides that when a person makes a declaration of eligibility under the scheme, they must not be due any award and must not have made a claim to receive universal credit that would be payable during the entitlement period. In...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 10 - The income of the person and his or her partner must not exceed limit (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Catherine McKinnell: ..., and a lot of the evidence we received pointed to these questions being raised with and hopefully at least considered by the Government, if not responded to. We need to ensure that this additional tax expenditure achieves the maximum possible. The Government’s own stated aim is to ensure that it makes a difference to parents for whom, at the moment, it simply does not add up for...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 8 - The person must be in the UK (21 October 2014)

Priti Patel: The Bill provides a broad rule setting the territorial scope of the scheme by requiring those benefiting from it to be in the United Kingdom. That follows the same approach as for tax credits and universal credit, so regulations made under the clause will provide detail on exactly what that means, with some necessary explanation. The draft regulations that we have made available to members of...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 5 - Entitlement periods (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Lucy Powell: I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 5, page 5, line 2, at end insert— ‘(5) The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall, within 12 months of the opening of the first childcare account under section 17, undertake a review of the impact of the three month entitlement period under this section. (6) The report referred to in subsection (5) must in particular...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 1 - Entitlement to receive money towards costs of childcare (21 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: ...how families will be better off. I will touch on some of the specific points she raised about who will be better off, who will qualify and the financial support in the Government’s wider child care package. Clauses 6 to 13 set out a series of eligibility conditions; we will come on to look at those later. There are requirements on parents to: submit a declaration of eligibility to...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 3 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: The core purpose of the Bill is obviously to provide support to working families with child care costs. I do not think we should just look at projections—I hear what you say about research and what the Resolution Foundation has said, but we cannot just look at it in terms of one particular part of the population. We are still providing funding through universal...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (16 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Dr Stewart: Yes. Some evidence that we have seen, certainly for the UK, suggests that as you see the working tax credit become more generous, you see the fees going up. I have not seen any robust evidence,  because it is difficult to do because you have no counterfactual about what would have happened to the child care fees. There are more studies in Australia, but they certainly...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 7 other results from this clause

Vidhya Alakeson: We acknowledge that there are some improvements in the Bill through the creation of tax-free child care compared with the current employer-supported voucher, the fact that it is not related to what your employer chooses to do but is available to all parents, and the fact that is available to the self-employed. We have three areas of concern. One is a very broad concern and...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

...Mann: Absolutely—sorry. Removing that link means that all the employee has is an online account and whatever online guidance they can access to help them through the myriad complexities that are child care benefits. It has to be said at this point that our specialism is not the benefits available to working parents. However, I believe from hearing anecdotally from experts that it is...
