As announced on 4th October 2010, the current Government plan to cut Child Benefit for 'high' earner families from 2013. This would mean that families where one partner earns more than 44k per annum will no longer be able to get Child Benefit. However if each partner were to earn under this, such as 43k each, they would still get Child Benefit although the overall household income would be 86k! Please sign this petition to show the government that this is not 'firm, but fair' but is in fact discriminating against single earning households where mothers (or fathers) want to stay at home to care for their children, and that a higher overall family income cap would be more fair.
