Limit Child Benefit to 1st child only

Comment 2nd July 2010

Limit child benefit to the first child only from a date 12 months from enactment into law. Continue with existing arrangements for all children receiving it now and that cost will gradually wither on the vine as years go by.

Why does this matter?

It is not the purpose of the state to subsidise children. In the current financial mess it simply cannot be afforded.  If you can't afford them, then don't have them. The introduction of the new rule with 12 months notice, is more than enough time for people to plan accordingly.
