Stop the government scrapping child tax benefit for a single income of a higher tax rate payer in the household
Petition Background (Preamble):
Mr Osborne also revealed the total state benefits one family can claim in future will be capped at about £26,000.
This will mean that no family on welfare will be better off than one earning an average income from work, the chancellor said.
He outlined the steps in a major speech in which he defended the government's austerity measures as cuts "not for their own sake" but savings "to secure our future".
About 7.7 million families with children currently get child benefit, costing about £12bn a year. George Osborne has announced.
