Abstract/Citation: Makes changes in the way housing costs are calculated for income support purposes. The major changes (all to Schedule 3 to the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987 (No. 1967)) are: a standard rate of interest applies to all loans which qualify as housing costs; housing costs are divided into existing housing costs and new housing costs; in the case of existing housing costs, these costs are met in full after the claimant has been entitled to income support for 26 weeks or more; in the case of new housing costs, they are met when the claimant has been entitled to income support for a continuous period of 39 weeks.
