Issued:15/05/13

A government-commissioned report into the government’s Local Housing Allowance changes was published this week by a research consortium led by Sheffield Hallam University's Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research. The report found that housing benefit claimants in the private rented sector have had to meet 94 per cent of the shortfall caused by local housing allowance cuts.
