Dear HM Revenue and Customs,
In the budget 2018, then the following announcement was made:
From 6 April 2017, families in Child Tax Credit or UC are no longer paid a child element for a third or subsequent child born on or after that date unless they are eligible for an exception. There are a number of exceptions to this policy, including third or subsequent children being looked after in non-parental care (NPC) arrangements, and adopted children. This measure extends these two exceptions to families with third or subsequent children in cases where the children adopted or in NPC arrangements are the first or second children in the family.
This measure will apply from November 2018.
However, the costings given in the budget for this measure were combined with other measures said to be part of a package that was to provide "Universal Credit:
additional support for transition".
Please release any costings for the specific measure (exceptions to two child rule for NPC arrangement and adopted children) that was in the budget.
