Original Motion Text

That this House views with concern the exclusion by regulation under the Social Security Act 1986 of the income support premiums for people without accommodation who are elderly, sick or disabled which are paid to those in the same circumstances who are housed; believes that income support premiums are an essential component of basic income maintenance for all sick, disabled or elderly claimants including those without accommodation, more particularly since these premiums are not intended to cover accommodation costs; and calls urgently on Her Majesty's Government to permit payment of the premiums to claimants without accommodation.
