I congratulate the Government on what they have done for child benefit. May we draw the conclusion that the level of pay settlements has gone down, while the level of child benefit has risen? Will my hon. Friend talk to the Treasury and ensure that the increases in child benefit continue year by year, so that pay settlement levels come down and we all prosper?
