Child Benefit is for the children of THIS country, not other countries. Closing this loophole will reduce the costs to this Government and the tax payer.
Child benefit claims should only be paid to the parents/guardians if their child is a full-time resident of the UK. Claims should not be allowed if one parent works in the UK whilst the children are living in another country. As soon as the children are removed from the country to reside elsewhere permanently, Child Benefit should be stopped immediately.
