Start of Welfare Action Week (10 Oct 2011)

The National Housing Federation are starting their "action week".

 David Orr, the federation chief executive said about the proposed HB changes:

‘Hard up families will be left with a stark choice if these proposals go ahead: either move out of your home to a cheaper area or stay put and live in hardship or debt.

‘We believe these reforms will be hugely damaging to community life and will see people priced out of their homes, away from local schools, and their support networks.

‘With time running out to influence ministers, this week is the chance for anyone who is concerned about these proposals to stand up and be counted.’
