SUPPORT FOR THE PROFOUNDLY DISABLED
EDM #2475
Tabled 11 November 2008
2007-08 Session
That this House notes that profoundly disabled people over the age of 25 years who live with and are looked after by a relative are classed as persons disregarded for the purposes of discount within Schedule 1 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 and therefore are not required to pay a contribution to council tax; further notes that if the relative is on housing benefit the disabled person is required to pay a non-dependant contribution to housing benefit; believes that profoundly disabled people should not have to pay either council tax or a contribution to housing benefit; and calls on the Government to address this anomaly.
