LibDems to work with YMCA.

Lib Dem MP Julian Huppert today met with the YMCA to talk about plans to abolish housing benefit for the under-25s.

Huppert told tbg. that they had a very good chat. Huppert went on: "They do good work! We're going to try to work together on an employment and skills program."

tbg. was interested in opinions on housing benefit policy. When tbg. questioned the Lib Dem MP, he replied: "We both oppose it. It's Cameron's Tory policy, not Coalition Government or Lib Dem policy. Yet another thing we've stopped."

In tbg.'s opinion the policy does seem rather blanket at the moment. Indiscriminately denying under-25s housing benefit doesn't really seem all that sensible.
