my local jobcentre insists on a £100 limit per person signing for travel expenses. i was curious about this so searched online.

found this online i think its official and may be usefull.


2nd set of bullet points on page 13 says
• Each FSF case must be considered on its individual merits
i guess this means previous claims shouldnt be taken into account when making descisions on a new claim
