    briefing

    Child benefit, the only universal payment for children, is under threat.

    The value of child benefit has been frozen until 2013/14, drastically cutting the amount families receive, and it will be taxed away from families in a complex and deeply unfair way. These changes are unfair, unaffordable and unworkable. We are calling for the freeze to child benefits to be lifted and rates to be restored, and for tax on child benefit to be stopped.
