Thousands Homeless by Christmas

Thousands could be homeless by Christmas

I don’t understand this quote though: “Social landlords are already reporting a rise in rent arrears following the government’s move to reduce housing benefit earlier this year.”

Do people on LHA in council accomodation also get the room rate applied? I thought ‘
LHA rates are used to calculate housing benefit for tenants renting from private landlords’ and don’t apply to social housing.

See What does the LHA scheme cover?
