Reply To: New localities


Interesting information Richard.
Given that scale of locality reduction in England with, as you rightly point out, winners and losers I am just surprised that this topic barely gets a mention on our message board as an issue.This will be really be big concern for claimants and landlords (and elected members) who find a cut in ongoing HB from the first 52 week referral following the new locality being established.One rather naive benefit manager at a recent meeting I attended suggested that the number of losers would be compensated for by a similar increase in winners…. so thats alright then. problem solved.I don’t think so.
