Letter: Childcare tax breaks

BRITAIN is a massively overpopulated country in a massively overpopulated world, yet your proposal would provide one further incentive for people to burden themselves with children that they cannot afford and the nation does not need.

There is no good reason why other people should procreate at my expense. If tax breaks are to be given in this area at all, they should be given to single people without dependent children, who can work longer, move around more easily and use disproportionately few of the state's services.
