The Government estimates it will pay out £19.6 billion in housing benefit during the 2009/10 financial year, according to figures slipped out on the Department for Work and Pensions' (DWP) website.

The year-on-year rise, of almost 15 per cent, is the steepest for more than 15 years. In 2010/11 the bill is expected to rise still further, to £20.8 billion.

A spokesman for the Treasury said the governments pay policies reflected the need to recruit and retain staff, but still delivered value for the taxpayer.

Thats a straightforward lie, how can he speak of value when we are increasingly paying more for the same services and fewer in a lot of cases?

The taxpayer is being taken for a ride.
