Nearly 200 households with ten or more children are costing the state £2million a year in housing benefit.

An estimated 380,000 households with more than two children rely on the handouts to pay their rent.

Some 42,000 of these have more than five children, receiving on average £7,500 for their housing costs. And 190 families have ten or more children, receiving on average £10,526 in housing benefit.

Families with three or more children cost taxpayers some £2.3billion in housing benefits. The government has vowed to cut this back by imposing a cap on the maximum amount that can be claimed in welfare to £26,000 a year.

Cabinet ministers have also triggered controversy by urging welfare recipients to consider whether they can afford to have more children.

    Well that’s a stupid question. As long as the tax payer is paying, each child brings more money, so the entitled may as well keep reproducing as they haven’t much to occupy themselves with otherwise.

    *I’m sure they missed the part where “this is not including Muslims” should have been made clear.Trouble otherwise.
