Malcolm Bruce, Liberal Democrat MP for Gordon, asked the secretary of state for social security for an estimate of the savings that result from those people aged under 25 who apply for the shared-residence requirement for housing benefit (WA 27 Jan col 103, Hansard).

Information was not available but estimated savings for the financial years 1996-97, 1997-98 and 1998-99 are£13 m,£57m and£62m. An exercise is also under way to monitor the effect of changes to housing benefit for single childless claimants aged under 25.
