80% support Child Benefit changes & cost of MPs' foreign junkets doubles.

80% of the public support the proposed changes to Child Benefit due to come into force soon.

The poll by Populus is a boost for Chancellor George Osborne as he bids to save £1.7 Billion a year.

And remember how Commons Speaker John Bercow pledged a crackdown on MPs foreign led junkets?

Seems as though he's got his work cut out.

New figures show that the costs of junkets to the tax payer in the last financial year almost doubled from £474,000 to £852,000.
