Welfare Reform Bill Clause 94 Briefing

By:   Published: January 2012


Summary

We are promoting amendments to:

  • Exempt homeless households in temporary accommodation (TA) from the cap (amendment 61)
  • Allow all households a 26 week grace period before the cap is imposed (amendment 60)

We are also supportive of amendment 59 which would exempt child benefit from the calculation of the cap, as this would reduce its disproportionate impact on children and mitigate the harm to the fight against child poverty.
