UK: Conservative budget to institute 'two child policy'

22 July 2015

Chancellor George Osborne made the announcement, dubbed a "two-child policy" by pro-lifers

The Conservative party's new budget will cap child tax credits at two children, it has been reported.

George Osborne announced that parents who have more than two children after April 2017 are to be denied tax credits for these children. Associate professor of economics at the Catholic University of Dallas Dr. William Doyle criticised the announcement as "profoundly 'anti-life.'"

SPUC's general secretary Paul Tully described relevant parts of the budget as an "economy-centred, anti-marriage, de-sexed, anti-family vision of society". [LifeSiteNews, 17 July]
