Changes to social services must not be at the expense of the poorest in society, said the Association of Metropolitan Authorities, in support of a statement issued by the National Federation of Housing Associations, the Citizens Advice Bureaux and the Institute of Housing today.

Margaret Moran, Chair of the AMA Housing Committee, said 'Anxieties are rising about how the Government's Social Security Review will hit housing benefit. The main cause of rising housing benefit can be found in the government's own policies, such as rent increases in both the social and private sector and increased unemployment.'
