Vulnerable are protected in benefit changes

Tue, 01/15/2013

Vulnerable residents in East Cambridgeshire are to be protected from large reductions in council tax support following a decision by Councillors last week.

At a Full Council meeting at East Cambridgeshire District Council, members approved a new council tax support scheme, after the Government abolished the national scheme for Council Tax Benefit and reduced the money it gives councils to pay these benefits by ten per cent.
