I agree with the previous post. Child allwance should be capped after the 2nd child. It is the parents responsibility to provide for their children not the state. I feel this system is very much abused. In a time of economic hardship I think people should be encouraged to have small famlies. Some people milk this system so they don't have to work you know!!! .

I also heard but don't know if this is true that immigrants  can work in this country and claim this benefit for their children who don't reside in the UK. They send it home. This has got to stop!! I do understand these people have a right to work here and are on shockingly low wages.

Why is this idea important?

People have to learn to stand on their own 2 feet.  The money you would save could be used elswhere.
