star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>This information is not available.</p><p> </p><p>It is not possible to calculate the proportion of those affected by the removal of the spare room subsidy policy to date due to the dynamic nature of the caseload (i.e. every month there are on-flows as well as off-flows). However a recent DWP ad hoc publication did show that between May and December 2013 around 19,000 of the caseload downsized within the social rented sector over this period. This is likely to be an understatement and it does not include those who have downsized to the private rented sector.</p><p> </p><p>This represents around 10% of all those who during this period were no longer subject to a reduction in their housing benefit award due to the policy.</p> more like this

The Department does not operate any prefixes that begin with 0844 or 0843.</p><p>For its enquiry helplines, the Department will begin adding the choice of 0345 numbers to their 0845 helplines where its customers call for other reasons, and these are calls that typically take less time to resolve.</p><p>OFCOM proposals for implementing change to 08 numbers are due to be implemented in June 2015. The changes result in improved charge transparency for some non geographic numbers including 0845. DWP will monitor the impact these changes have on 08 charges.</p> more like this
