§ Baroness Masham of Ilton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, in response to the declining birth rate in the United Kingdom, they will offer financial and other incentives to couples to have more children. [HL6137]
Lord McIntosh of Haringey: The Government have no plans to offer financial or other incentives to couples to have more children. However, the Government are concerned to give all the nation's children the best start in life and have thus increased financial support for families with children.
