SNP renews call for child maintenance to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament.

40% of parents relying on the UK government’s “collect and pay” scheme for child maintenance are failing to get the money owed – renewing calls for the service to be devolved.

Latest figures for the quarter to March 2018 show that compliance with the scheme is at 60%, with 8,800 parents due to pay and 5,300 paying some of due maintenance.

The UK government-run Child Maintenance Service (CMS) currently place a 4% fee on to any receiving parent, and charges an administration fee of £20 just to open their case.

The SNP has repeated its call for this ‘maintenance tax’ to be abolished due to fears it is harmful for low-income families.

The Govt are paid to administer things like child maintenance. CMS is a virtual pee taking scam.
