Please can you tell me if the council has done any work looking at how many
tenants or benefit recipients are now affected by the new benefit cap
introduced on 7 November?
If so, please tell me:

   - How many tenants or benefit recipients are now affected

   benefit cap
   - How many of these tenants are in rent arrears?
   - What size home tenants affected by the new benefit cap occupy? i.e. 1
