I write this on behalf of a single pensioner who lives in a 2 bedroom flat who has raised concerns as to what this could/would mean for anybody in her position.
As maybe the case with many single pensioners who receive pension credit and live in social housing with housing benefit covering the rental cost, if this bill passes in the form the present government wish.
Will this mean that as this pensioner is single and lives in a 2 bedroom flat that he/she will be liable to pay £14 towards her rent? Or are pensioners exempt from this?
Thanks for any advice given that I can pass on.
