Benefits cap begins today

All the press have featured this story today. The Government has pointed out that few families have been made homeless as a result of this policy in the 4 pilot areas; the DHP or the local Council has picked up the cost. With issues about DHP's not being spent and returned to the Treasury (see other news), it is difficult to argue against this.
