The amount of tax payers money expended children, whether as benefit or free milk etc should be shouldered by those who want them.
Isn't it about time that those among us who wish to perpetuate the species, pay for their upkeep.
In a modern society it is unthinkable that those tax payers who do not have children, (for whatever reason), should be asked to pay towards their maintenance.
If you can't afford to support them – don't have them!
One would not ask a neighbour to help pay towards ones mortgage or the car service, or even towards maintenance of ones wife – so why their children?
The idea of paying people to replicate is outdated – unless of course the government are anticipating another world war.
