More On How Housing Benefits Cuts Will Change London

On Thursday 24th March the House of Commons Welfare Reform Bill Committee met to hear further evidence on the Bill that will affect the welfare of millions of families and pensioners on low incomes. Those readers that have followed the housing benefits aspects of this bill, and in particular the worrying approach taken by Hammersmith and Fulham’s Conservative Administration, will find the evidence presented interesting. You can watch that meeting by clicking here.

Evidence was provided by Child Poverty Action Group, Gingerbread, Fatherhood Institute, Working Families, Women’s Budget Group, Centre for Separated Families, Family Action, the Local Government Association, London Councils, Shelter, the National Housing Federation, the National Landlords Association and Crisis.
