regionalised minimum wage & benefits
The minimum wage (NMW) for an area should be linked to the LHA (Loca Housing Allowance) and/or other geographical measures of cost of living.
Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support, Disability Living Allowance and other benefits should also vary dependent on cost of living in that area.
They should be re-assessed every 6 months to make sure the levels are right.
if its a decrease in public spending ? but you give no idea what the cost might be ?
