Hundreds of homes which have had benefits capped have moved into work
MORE than 400 homes in the South West that had their benefits capped have now moved into work, or reduced their own benefit claim below the weekly limit of the cap.
Figures reveal 160 households subject to the benefit cap found jobs, since the limit was introduced in April.
Another 90 households either reduced their Housing Benefit claim, or stopped claiming it altogether.
