1 child paid for per household

Benefits for children should be limited to one per household. This would include not only child benefit and child tax credits, but also income support. A lone parent could be in receipt of income support until their OLDEST child reaches the age of seven (or what ever the cut off will be). After that point if a person out of work with children wants to claim a benefit they would have to claim job seekers allowance and actively look for work.

Savings from this cut should be put towards subsidised child care for working families.
