Yes John….Labour have been very quiet on this area.

It is May next week and suddenly the Government is talking about all sorts of changes to start in September. Even though legislation is needed first. I noticed Neil Couling was asked about exempt/temp accommodation but said nothing and also about pensioners and said legislation would be published “soon”. That was promised 5 years ago.

Not easy for DWP officials when they know the Minister pressing them for action probably wont even be an MP in a few months. Will the same officials be left in place or will Labour want a new broom? Who knows? They are rightly waiting. Tony Blair did the same before his first administration 25 years ago.
