Topic: Direct payments

At this meeting we discussed some of the most common problems with direct payments (DP) and the ways to deal with those problems.

We considered what local authorities can and cannot legally do to restrict the use of direct payments, cut the amounts of DP or claw back the money that has not been spent.
