Housing Benefit

Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with Boris Johnson’s comments that changes to housing benefit could result in Kosovo-style social cleansing , the PMS said that the Prime Minister did not agree with what Boris Johnson said or the way he said it.

Asked if the two would meet up and discuss it, the PMS said that he was sure if the Mayor wanted to have a discussion then a discussion would take place; they met from time to time.

Asked if the Prime Minister would meet with critics of the housing benefit changes, the PMS said that the Communities Department was leading on this policy and you would expect them to deal with it. There would be a White Paper and a Bill, which meant that there would be discussions taking place throughout the process.
