To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what representations the Department has received from the Learning and Skills Council about the cancellation of a mother's child benefit due to receipt of a £40 per week grant through the modern apprenticeship scheme. [100614]

Malcolm Wicks

The Department receives many representations on a variety of issues.

For young people between the ages of 16 and 18, Child Benefit is payable if they are in full-time, non advanced education, and for a short defined period after they leave such education. Child Benefit is not payable for those who start work or work-based training.
