Cameron predicts 'no problems' with child benefit cuts

Prime Minister David Cameron says he does not "predict a problem" in implementing child benefit cuts, amid claims plans are unenforceable.

Higher rate taxpayers could be fined if they fail to declare that their partner receives child benefit.

The Treasury has confirmed that "penalties" would be issued in cases of non-disclosure of earnings.

The benefit is to be stopped from 2013 if at least one parent earns over £44,000, but some experts have questioned whether this is workable.
