General secretary Frances O'Grady called on the Government to restore universal child benefit, as the deadline to register with HM Revenue and Customs ends tomorrow.
Quite apart from the fact that the decision to withdraw the benefit is unfairly hitting single parents, many families where one parent earns more than £50,000 are - even at this late stage - still unaware that unless they've visited the HMRC website by the end of tomorrow they may be fined.
To make matters worse, HMRC isn't only sending letters to those parents affected by the change.
