Yes 11th April and I think there is a circular due out next week, although there was mention of this in the DWP information bulletins which was a bit contradictory where it stated that (temporarily) TA would be going back to HB but then also mentioned that the long term solution remains to ring fence funding and provide direct support to LA's to give to providers so there were no claims for housing costs from those in TA.
