BBC Reporter Trying To Live On £53 Per Week

April 10, 2013

A BBC reporter has begun her attempt to live for one week on no more than £53.

Emma Vardy’s mission was inspired by a petition signed by 450,000 people urging Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith to do the same.

The debate follows a welfare shake-up including cuts to housing benefit for some social housing tenants.

Emma has been canvassing opinion in Oxfordshire. Her attempt concludes on Friday.
