Chancellor George Osborne has announced plans to scrap child benefit where one parent earns about £44,000 a year. This is due to come into affect in 2013.
Ministers estimate the change will affect about 1.2 million families. These families are not "super-rich" but working hard and getting by.
Mr Osborne confirmed the cut would hit homes with a single or two high earners but families with two parents on incomes up to £44,000 - which might add up together to over £80,000 - would keep the benefit.
This proposal has provoked a huge response from the media, political parties and from "middle Britain".
