– Public consultation on Housing Benefit Regulation

The Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC) has been asked by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions to consider proposals for the Housing Benefit (Amendment) Regulations 2010, and the associated amendments to the Rent Officers (Housing Benefit Functions Order) 2010.

Before the Committee considers and reports on these proposals, it would like to hear from organisations and individuals who have views. Those wishing to make representations to the Committee may obtain a copy of the Department’s explanatory memorandum, and a copy of the draft regulations from the SSAC website or from the Secretary to the Committee, Gill Saunders (0207 962 8345). Representations should be sent to the Committee at N E Spur, Level 3, Adelphi Building, 1-11 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6HT or by email to, or via the consultation response facility on the website, to arrive no later than 10 September 2010.

Please note that this consultation exercise has no connection with the Work and Pensions Committee’s enquiry into the impact of these Housing Benefit changes that was announced on 27 July 2010.
