Dr Dan Poulter MP: Put an end to commercial 'parenting club' reps in maternity units
Join the call for HMRC to end its £90k/year relationship with Bounty
Sep 25, 2013 — HMRC pay Bounty to distribute Child Benefit claim forms within the Bounty packs that reps give out on maternity wards. This gives Bounty a legitimacy that they would otherwise not have.
Treasury Secretary David Gauke MP should end HMRC’s relationship with Bounty and stop using this commercial enterprise as the means of distributing the Child Benefit form.
To support this campaign please email David Gauke MP's private office: firstname.lastname@example.org
And ask him to end the arrangement with Bounty and review the system so that:
1.Child Benefit forms are made available via the Registry Office (reaching 100% of new parents).
2. Forms are made available with other forms that a parent might need as a single package, to pick up from post offices, from a midwife or health visitor.
3. Forms are made available free of charge to charities so that they can distribute them direct to parents.
Please remember to give your address.
