Tom-All-Alone: Westminster’s Future Homeless Accommodation.

On the National Day of Protest Against Welfare & Housing Benefit Cuts Westminster Council acts.

A council has admitted it plans to move 80 per cent of homeless housing benefit claimants needing temporary accommodation out of the borough.
