    David Cameron has pledged that young people between the ages of 18 and 21 would be barred from claiming housing benefit under a future Conservative government.

    Speaking at the last Conservative Party conference the prime minister said that his party would also cut the household benefit cap by £3,000 from £26,000 if they’re in power after the next election, reports Inside Housing.

    These plans will see most unemployed young people losing their entitlement to housing benefit.

    The reduction of the total household benefit cap and the restriction on housing benefit is intended to fund the creation of three million apprenticeships over the next parliemtn.

    Care leavers, single parents and ‘some’ people with vulnerabilities would be exempt from the reforms.

    Mr Cameron said: “Our plans will give hundreds of thousands of young people the opportunity of a better, more secure future. And we will pay for it by cutting the benefit cap and stopping most young people from claiming housing benefit.”
