Detail of outcome
We published the government response to this consultation on 20 January 2017. We received 82 responses. Around 50 were from organisations.
The child element in Universal Credit and the individual element in Child Tax Credit will be payable to a maximum of 2 children from April 2017 (Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016).
This consultation seeks evidence and views to inform the detailed design of the 4 exceptions that have been announced, and their implementation. It is not a consultation on the policy itself.
