Research on LHA changes

Jeremy Corbyn (Islington North, Labour) has continued his ongoing spat with Grant Shapps.

He recently questioned the Minister of State for Housing and Local Government on whether his Department is undertaking any research on the effect of the changes in Housing Benefit rules in London and specifically:

"how many people he estimates have (a) moved and (b) been made homeless as a result of those changes."

The Minister confirmed that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) had commissioned an independent consortium of academics and research organisations to evaluate the effects of the recent local housing allowance changes. Many landlords have been negatively impacted on the reduction in rents paid to their tenants on benefits and will await with interest the outcome of this research.
