Treasury targets households with terror links

Households suspected of having links to al-Qa’eda and the Taliban will not
receive state benefits and tax credits.

The Treasury has begun taking action to stop the flow of payments to wives
and relatives of terror suspects living in the UK, following the adoption of
a United Nations resolution targeted at the suspects themselves.

Changes to the rules will stop anyone sharing a house with a listed person
from getting cash from the government.
