An MP tells of a disabled constituent whose benefits were cut to £71-a-week because of the one-year restriction on contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance. He was also hit by bedroom tax and new Council Tax rules, which, combined, left him £42 per week to live on. He asked to move to a smaller property, but the local housing association demanded two weeks’ full rent – £197 – up front before he had received any Housing Benefit.
