Name: Lisa Khangar (with husband Mark and two year-old son Babak) Age: 27 Occupation: Bank worker From: Rawthorpe Should child benefits be stopped for people earning pounds 44k to pay for reform of the benefits system? No. It's going to affect everybody, especially the people who have got younger kids.

Yes. I don't think it's fair that higher earners receive benefits because they don't need to claim it.
