Child Benefit Reforms

Asked whether the PM is concerned about reports that the child benefit reforms are in chaos and that women will be able to avoid missing out if they don’t declare their partners’ incomes, PMS stated that the changes will be implemented as the Government has set out.

Asked whether it was true that a change in the law was needed to ensure that everyone affected by the cut will have to fill in a tax return form, PMS said that this measure is enforceable, it will be introduced as planned and the legislation will be bought forward.

Asked whether it was the Government’s policy that stay at home mums who don’t declare will be dragged through the courts, PMS echoed the Treasury position that it would take action against individuals in cases of non-disclosure for tax purposes.
