A Fresh Start: Child Support Redesign - the Government's Response to Sir David Henshaw
The Stationery Office, Jul 24, 2006 - Social Science - 17 pages
In February 2006, Sir David Henshaw was asked to redesign the system of child support. In his report he proposed a simpler system that encouraged parents to take responsibility for their own arrangements whilst dealing more firmly and effectively with those who needed help in arranging child maintenance. This document is the first stage in the Government's response to the Henshaw Report. It sets out a number of questions around the broad principles of the proposed system, to invite comment. It will publish a White Paper in the autumn, with a plan to bring in legislation and see a new system in place by 2008.
