The Government recognises that the impact of the freeze will differ across the country, and has recycled 50% of the savings from the LHA freeze to increase LHA rates in areas where rental growth has been strongest.

Written Answers — Treasury: Wealth (5 Sep 2019)

Rishi Sunak: Addressing inequalities is an important consideration for this Government, and steps have already been taken to ensure those with the broadest shoulders bear the greatest burden.

This has led to the top 1% of income taxpayers...
