Motion text

That this House welcomes the baby bonus element of the child tax credit but notes with concern that this bonus is payable by birth and not by child; acknowledges that multiple births result in much higher costs to a family; recognises that families with twins miss out on ú545 and those with triplets are short changed by over ú1,000; notes that the estimated cost of paying baby bonus in respect of each baby would be ú5 million per year; and calls upon the Government to take urgent action to end this discriminatory approach to families of twins, triplets and other multiple births.
