Baroness Lister of Burtersett to ask Her Majesty's Government, what assessment they have made of the Observation by the Institute for Fiscal Studies entitled Stealthy changes mean that soon one in five families with children will be losing some Child Benefit, published on 7 January, which states that around 370,000 more families will lose some child benefit in 2019–20 than in 2013–14 because of the freezing of the £50,000 income threshold; what is their estimate of the number of non-higher rate taxpayers who will be affected by that policy as a result; and what saving this will make to the public purse.
