Let's have honest child-benefit debate

AFTER months of delay, the Mangan Report on child benefit is finally to be published soon.

Today in this newspaper we bring you details of that report and the options it outlines on whether these payments should be means-tested or taxed.

We hope it can begin a process of informed and reasoned debate on choices about that scarce resource, taxpayers' money, and how we can best assure the welfare of all the children of the nation.
