So 4,230 households have become homeless, in London, due to the Benefit Cap. The article states that local authorities in London have accepted that they owe these families a main homelessness duty – how much more money does that mean they have to spend on these families than they were before April this year?
If we knew that, we would be able to show the true cost of this policy. Too many people think this pointless Coalition government is bringing spending under control when in fact it is making matters worse.
