To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many claimants he expects to return to work as a consequence of the revised benefit cap.
This information is not available as the benefit cap has not been revised.
The latest official statistics show over 55,000 households have been capped to November 2014. In total, on average, 800 households per month have either found work or are no longer claiming housing benefit. Of those no longer capped, 40 per cent or 12,478 households went into work. The actual number of households who have gone into work may be higher; some individuals may go into work but may not be eligible to claim WTC if their earnings are too high or the hours worked do not meet the claim requirements.
