Housing Minister Kris Hopkins and Minister for Welafre Reform Lord Freud have been called to give evidence to a House of Commons inquiry into housing costs.

The Work and Pensions select committee will question the minister on a range of subjects including:

• How the government intends to support vulnerable people affected by the Social Sector Size Criteria (bedroom tax) and the benefit cap
• Government plans to ensure all supported accommodation is exempt from the SSSC and the benefit cap
• What the current government position is regarding temporary accommodation and its interaction with the SSSC and the benefit cap
• Affordability of suitable accommodation in the private sector for housing benefit claimants
• Discretionary housing payment allocations and sufficiency of funds in the future
• How the government intends to support local authorities and tenants affected by changes to council tax support
• Resourcing arrangements in the Local Support Services Framework

The session takes place in the Grimond Room at Portcullis House on Wednesday 12 February at 9.30am.
