EVICTIONS IN BENEFIT CAP AREAS

That this House is deeply concerned that claimants in areas participating in the trial of the Government's benefit cap are being sent eviction letters by landlords because they may not be able to pay the rent; notes that one of Britain's biggest social landlords, Genesis, has issued this warning to tenants in Haringey; believes that this provides the first evidence that these welfare changes will lead to increased homelessness; further notes that Enfield Council is considering moving 330 people to places like Birmingham and Bradford; and calls on the Government, even now, to scrap this plan which is bound to lead to misery and homelessness for some of the country's poorest families.
