Helen Jones – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Work and Pensions

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Helen Jones on 2014-03-26.

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many refuges are not classed as supported exempt accommodation for the purposes of housing benefit.

Steve Webb

The information requested is not available. Designation as supported exempt accomodation is relevant only to claims by individuals for Housing Benefit and is not intrinsic to the definition or purpose of a refuge or other supported housing.
