Housing Benefit

The Guardian’s Data Blog has published tables of estimated losses to housing benefit recipients as a result of changes being proposed by the government.

As the data is available at the local authority level I thought I’d take a look at what that might mean for people living in Lewisham.

    Is this per week, per month, or per year? Thanks.

    Yes, blimey indeed, and I don’t think that Lewisham is the worst hit.

    I guess the question will be whether this hit is taken by the recipients of the benefit, the landlord or a mix of the two.
