Review child benefit

It was suggested that a review of child benefit could allow issues to be explored such as whether it is best to provide universal services to children such as lunch clubs, breakfast clubs, after school clubs and free school uniforms. However, there was debate about whether the state or families are best placed to provide these and whether people should have choice.

There was also discussion about who was best to receive child benefit, and whether it should be restricted to women and single fathers. There was no agreement on this.

Why the contribution is important

It is vital to give all children the best start and we need to know if the money we are spending could be better directed.
