star this property answer text <p>The government announced at Spring Statement an ambitious package of measures to support the environment, including mandating biodiversity net gain for development in England, supporting the Ascension Island Council in its decision to designate a new Marine Protected Area around Ascension Island, launching a comprehensive global review of the link between biodiversity and economic growth, to be led by Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, and taking forward a Call for Evidence on biodiversity in the Overseas Territories. These measures will help to deliver on this government’s pledge to be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it.

star this property answer text <p>The Government introduced the High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC) from January 2013 to ensure that support is targeted at those who need it most. It applies to anyone with an individual income over £50,000, who claims Child Benefit or whose partner claims it, regardless of the make-up of their household.</p><p> </p><p>If total household income was taken into account, information on the incomes of everyone in each of the eight million households receiving Child Benefit would need to be collected and would effectively introduce a new means test. The Government’s approach withdraws Child Benefit from those on high incomes, whilst having no impact on the majority of claimants.</p><p> </p><p>The charge increases gradually for taxpayers with incomes between £50,000 and £60,000. Families in which at least one taxpayer has an income over £60,000 can choose not to receive Child Benefit, which means they do not have to pay the charge.</p><p> </p><p>Parents who are entitled to Child Benefit should still complete the Child Benefit claim form as this will help them to qualify for National Insurance Credits and thereby protect their entitlement to the State Pension and other contributory benefits.</p>
