In the Welfare Reform White Paper, ‘Raising expectations and increasing support: reforming welfare for the future’ (Cm 7506) published in December 2008, we announced our intention to launch a public consultation on housing benefit reform early in 2009. The timing of this consultation has not been finalised.
