star this property answer text <p>Families on benefits should have to make the same financial decisions as families supporting themselves solely through work. However, in recognition that some claimants are not able to make choices about the number of children in their family the government has provided exceptions in certain cases. Following debate in parliament and a public consultation, the government introduced regulations that allow exceptions to apply in cases where the third or subsequent children are:</p><p> </p><ul><li><p>part of a multiple birth, although it does not cover one child in that birth on the grounds that the parents would have expected the pregnancy to have resulted in at least one birth;</p><p> </p></li><li><p>children who are adopted when they would otherwise be in Local Authority care;</p><p> </p></li><li><p>in non-parental caring arrangements, including formal arrangements (e.g. Child Arrangement Orders, Special Guardianship Orders, certain Scottish Kinship Care Orders etc) and informal arrangements where the child is living long terms with friends or family and would otherwise be at risk of entering the care system;</p><p> </p></li><li><p>born as a result of non-consensual conception (including cases of rape or coercion and control).</p></li></ul><p>Statistics relating to exceptions to the limit on support to two children in Child Tax Credit will be published once there are sufficient cases to enable robust analysis and the data has been quality assured.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to supporting families. We are helping families retain more of what they earn by raising the personal allowance, successive increases mean that a basic rate tax payer will be £1,075 better off in 2018-19 than in 2010-11. Also, to help working parents we have doubled free childcare available for 3 and 4 year olds to 30 hours a week, saving in total around £5,000 a year per child, and we are introducing Tax Free Childcare, providing support of up to £2000 per year for each child. However, there is more to do and the government is committed to delivering a country that works for everyone. Last April, the government published its “Improving Lives: Helping Workless Families” strategy. This focused on measures that tackle the root causes of poverty and improve children’s welfare, in particular parental worklessness and educational attainment. Data on each of the areas targeted by the Strategy is published annually. We keep all our policies under review, including the policy of limiting support in Child Tax Credits.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to supporting all families. The government provides a range of support in addition to Child Tax Credit. Child Benefit is paid for each child in a household, at £20.70 per week for the first child and £13.70 a week for each subsequent child. To help working parents, the government has doubled the free childcare available for 3 and 4 year olds to 30 hours a week for 38 weeks a year (or 1140 hours per year), saving families in total around £5,000 a year per child. The government is committed to ensuring that the potential impacts on families of its policies are carefully taken into account as part of the policymaking process by applying the Family Test.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The difference between the estimate in the Impact Assessment and the statistic published in “Child Tax Credit and Universal Credit claimants: statistics related to the policy to provide support for a maximum of 2 children, April 2018” is due to a combination factors, including improvements to the methodology used to identify the affected population, divergences between the economic determinants used to model the policy and actual outturn, and changes in the underlying claimant population. No formal analysis of the separate impact of these factors has been made.</p> more like this
