Backbench Debate: Child Maintenance Service

14th March 2017

I have received numerous complaints from constituents regarding the Child Maintenance Service. I have taken my case and that of people from across Scotland and the UK to the Backbench Business Committee to secure a debate on the topic.

CMS is failing parents and children and must begin to take the proper steps to ensure people are paid their maintenance in full and on time and that people are not taxed for accessing their legal rights.
