Housing providers could be forced to close accommodation for the most vulnerable because of housing benefit cuts - John Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Minister for Housing and Planning, responding to a survey released today which reveals that 95 per cent of specialist housing providers could be forced to close accommodation for the most vulnerable because of housing benefit cuts, said:

“Last month, we revealed that George Osborne's cuts to housing benefit support for thousands of elderly, disabled and homeless people could mean that vital supported accommodation across the country could close.

 

“This new survey confirms the catastrophic impact these cuts could have.

 

“George Osborne must halt these dangerous plans, publish a full impact assessment and consult fully with housing providers to safeguard this essential housing for those who need it.”
