Charity says Govt 'risks driving up homelessness'

The head of homeless charity Crisis has said the Government risks forcing poor people out of their homes because of changes to housing benefit such as the 'Bedroom Tax'.

"The Government must listen to this verdict from MPs across the political spectrum and rethink its cuts to Housing Benefit, particularly for those who cannot change their circumstances by working or who are struggling in low paid jobs. Without prompt action, the Government risks driving homelessness still higher."
