British jobless to live with parents?

United Kingdom,Immigration/Law/Rights,Lifestyle/Fashion, Sat, 07 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 7 (IANS) Thousands of unemployed youth in Britain are claiming housing benefits through a loophole that the government is hoping to plug and compel them to return to live with their parents, a media report said.


Downing Street wants to force unemployed people under 25 to move back in with their parents while they look for work. The initiative, still at a very early stage, is part of Prime Minister David Cameron's plan to ensure people are better off working than on benefits, reported Daily Mail.


Speaking of his plans to reduce Britain's Welfare Bill, Cameron Friday said: "For years people said 'you can't reform and cut welfare - the bills are bound to get higher, this is a fact of British life and there's nothing you can do about it'".


"We said - hang on - it can't be right that we pay people more to stay at home than go out to work. We've been the first government to come in and properly get a grip on this," he added.


"It can't be right to pay out 40,000 pounds, 50,000 pounds, 60,000 pounds in housing benefit to families where no one works."


The move is likely to be popular among voters, but some fear the government could struggle to pass legislation.


Cameron is expected to outline his plans to further attack Britain's welfare bill at a key speech, part of the Conservative Party's Welsh local election campaign.


The government has already slashed benefit allowances.
