Do the planned caps on housing benefit go too far?
Boris Johnson says the £400 a week cap on housing benefit will force families out of London. Should the government go ahead?
The Mayor of London said the new limits could lead to less well off residents being pushed out to the suburbs, and that he would not accept "Kosovo style social cleansing."
His comments have been criticised by ministers. Business Secretary Vince Cable accused Mr Johnson of using "inflammatory language on a difficult and sensitive issue." The Mayor has since said his words were taken out of context.
It's estimated that 21,000 people across the UK will be affected by the new caps, which reduce the amount families can claim for five, four, three, two and one bed properties. This includes 17,000 people living in London.
Will you be affected if the new caps go ahead? Do you think the government should continue with the plans?
