House of Lords written question – answered on 15th November 2010.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the proposed caps on housing benefits claims will be uprated with inflation; and, if so, which measure of inflation will be used.
We will uprate all local housing allowance rates in line with the consumer prices index from April 2013. Uprating of the overall caps will be considered in the context of that work, and we have no plans to uprate caps before then.
