Research claims children in the West Midlands receive the less pocket money that anywhere else in the UK.
They are given an average of £5.45 per-week, which was the smallest amount in a regional survey by a high street bank.
The research by Halifax found children in the East Midlands receive an average of £5.64 per week.
Giles Martin, Head of Halifax Savings, said:
A fall in the amount of pocket money children receive for the second year running shows the financial pressures that some households are still under, despite the improving economy.
Nevertheless, parents will be pleased to know that on the whole, children are satisfied with the amount of money they receive.
