PPI claims could help consumers reduce the effects of proposed new Council Tax Benefit (CTB) alterations.Trades Union Congress general secretary Brendan Barber criticised the idea as it would cause a million families who are already living on the edge of poverty more financial problems."The planned reforms will force local authorities to push vulnerable families deeper into poverty and debt," he added.Mr Barber stated families with children will be particularly affected as they could see a 16 per cent reduction in the amount of benefit they receive.The changes are part of the government's plans to reduce the deficit following the banking crisis. It hopes to reduce its CTB spending by ten per cent by abolishing the scheme and authorising local councils to decide who is entitled to benefits.Prime minister David Cameron recently told parliament that reducing spending was the most effective way to avoid soaring interest rates like those seen in Portugal and Greece.John FieldmanHaving worked in the city for 19 years, John's main focus is interest rates and corporate finance.
