Response to the Department for Work and Pensions and HM Revenue and Customs consultation on Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit: exceptions to the 2-child limit

The Commission does not have any specific commentary on the consultation questions, however we consider that implementation of the policy as a whole should be delayed until an adequate human rights and equality impact assessment is conducted.

Our analysis on changes to child tax credits is taken from our submission to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in advance of the public examination of the UK’s implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
