  1. Child benefit is the worst of all worlds.

    If the Government made parents reapply, stating that they did not pay upper rate tax, the system would be unfair but simple. If they took both parents’ income into account, it would be fairer, though having universal benefits strengthens solidarity- shows “we are all in it together”. What they have is a complex system of getting a lesser amount of ChB if you are just above the limit, and many more people completing tax self-assessments, and the injustice you name.

    Or, deal with it as a benefit entitlement issue- assess entitlement, rather than leaving entitlement as it was and messing around with income tax to take it away.
