Women's Aid And Housing Benefit

EDM number 1099 in 2015-16, proposed by Drew Hendry on 10/02/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Benefits policy, Children and families, Crimes of violence and Housing benefits.

That this House is concerned about the impact of the Government's planned changes to housing benefit on vulnerable people, particularly women and children across the UK who are fleeing domestic violence; notes that the Government has said changes to funding arrangements for supported accommodation would be cost neutral and is alarmed that the future of refuges and supported accommodation across the UK will be at risk; rejects these plans; and calls for a full exemption from the Local Housing Allowance rate for supported accommodation and refuges before April 2016 in order to safeguard the future of these vital services.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
