That this House notes that the seven local authority areas with the largest proportion of their population in receipt of local housing allowance are coastal areas containing some of the nation's best known seaside resorts; further notes that seaside resorts dependent on tourism tend to have economies built on low value, low paid, insecure employment where cuts to welfare cannot easily be replaced outside the black economy; and calls on the Government to review urgently the impact of welfare reforms on coastal economies and seaside resorts in particular, so that such areas do not suffer disproportionately from public spending cuts.
