The Mail on Sunday reports this morning on a radical idea from David Cameron to cut housing benefit for under-25s altogether, something that would save £1.8bn a year, he says. It’s a proposal bound to garner a lot of interest, and designed to win back faltering support from Tory voters.
But another suggestion caught my eye lower down this piece. The paper reports:
Well-placed sources say Ministers are also taking a fresh look at plans to limit child benefit to a couple’s first three children, although Mr Cameron is not expected to address this issue directly tomorrow.
