Jeremy Hunt: 'Fairness' is aim over child benefit

Prime Minister David Cameron has been hinting the government will look again at its decision to remove child benefit from higher rate tax payers.

From next year, if one parent earns more than around £44,000 a year, neither they nor their partner will be able to claim the benefit.

Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said fairness was the government's aim.
