The Department for Work and Pensions says that changes to Housing Benefit entitlement for working-age tenants from April 2013 'will reflect household size.'
The UK Government says that by 2013/14 an estimated 32% of working-age Housing Benefit claimants living in the social-rented sector in Great Britain will have more bedrooms than their household reasonably needs.
We will expect tenants to make a contribution towards the rent if they are living in accommodation which is larger than they need in the same way that Housing Benefit claimants living in the private sector do now.
