Dumping HIPs now will put a lot of folk like me out of work

I am writing with regard to the government’s plan to scrap HIPs.

Of course, the packs were poorly thought out from the start and remain ill-advised to this day.

But the number of people who will be put out of work as a result of scrapping them is huge, especially considering the government is looking to drive the country out of the recession.

I for one will be signing on straight away and filling my claim for housing benefit if HIPs are junked. I’m sure many others in the industry will follow suit.

After all, who’s going to recompense my training and effort in starting a new career and business?
