Philip Hammond (Shadow Chief Secretary To the Treasury, Treasury; Runnymede & Weybridge, Conservative) was asking the Chancellor of the Exchequer what conditions of eligibility for the child trust fund apply to migrant workers from EU accession states.
Ian Pearson (Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Economic and Business), Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform; Dudley South, Labour) answers:
Children of migrant workers from EU accession states are eligible for a child trust fund account if:
they were born on or after 1 September 2002;
have been or are resident in the UK on or after 6 April 2005, while not being subject to immigration controls; and
have been or are in a child benefit award on or after 6 April 2005, the date the child trust fund scheme was launched.
