Westminster Hall Debate: Effects of changes to Housing Benefit in Scotland

Citizens Advice Scotland’s briefing for the Westminster Hall debate taking place on Tuesday the 8th of February on the effects of housing benefit changes on Scotland.

In 2009/10 Citizens Advice Bureaux across Scotland dealt with 188,969 new benefit issues, over 17,000 of which were in relation to Housing Benefit. Housing Benefit is currently the third largest area of benefits enquiry brought to the Scottish CAB. This proportion is likely to increase as a result of the proposed changes which will leave 55,0001 households in Scotland worse off.
