Question

The homeless charity London Pathway have told me they are already seeing patients who seem to be casualties of this round of benefit changes. They described how people they would not expect to have seen a couple of months ago are now seeking help, and often it only takes an emergency hospital admission to trigger a collapse in already precarious housing circumstances. What will you do to protect vulnerable Londoners in this situation?
