Does that mean the figure of £350 is for a single person with long term ill health or disabilities? I ask, because the BBC stated that those on disability payments would not be affected. Therefore, if that is so, then yet again twisted information is being given to sway opinion.
What MP's get is not of concern to me. We could go through the whole of the workforce complaining about who gets what. I just don't like the media contributing to bad feedback when it's twisted truth. So is my above understanding correct?
People with disabilities (recieve PIP) are un-affected, this new legislation is mainly targetted at those with large families.
The 'thing' is, as evidenced above is that people assume that the unwaged recieve £350/ £500 per week in actual cash.
Alot of this money is actually paid to landlords in 'rent' and the recipient never gets to 'see it'.It is the Housing Benefit that gets reduced as a result of the Cap, so large families need to make up that shortfall out of their weekly allowance.
