The DWP simply do not have the staff to deal with the Housing element of UC, never mind the expertise. We will find the half way house that is due to exist until 2017 will continue. This will simply involve the DWP infoming LA’s the maximum that the can be paid in rent due to the cap. If they were sensible, which we know they are not, this would include the processing of CTB. I know the DCLG seems to be winning the argument in cabinet but they may just listen to the consultation responses….

Blimey I have just read that back and it does sound naive….. 🙂
