Welcoming the government’s decision not to extend the two-child limit retrospectively, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “The two-child limit is morally wrong and should be scrapped for everyone.
“Now at least families who had a third child before April 2017 won’t be hit, but there are still many others with younger children who will be. This is a highly flawed system that needs to be thoroughly rethought.”
