Child benefit cuts for better off are fair - Cameron
David Cameron has defended plans to cut higher rate taxpayers' child benefit, saying it is fair to ask them to contribute to cutting the deficit.
He said he knew cutting the benefit for people on more than £44,000 would not make him popular - but it was the "right thing to do".
Labour's Yvette Cooper described it as an "unfair attack on child benefit".
The BBC understands the government plans to introduce a tax break for married couples in this parliament.
