Can we get a breakdown of where this money actually goes?

It would be interesting to see which drain it is going down and whose trough it is filling. 15.8bn that's over half a HS2*.

*Before all the extra costs have been added due to all the errors and mistakes made during the lifetime of that particular white elephant.

P.S. Giving people on welfare the money to pay their landlords directly is probably one of the most stupid ideas the government has ever thought of. Which would you put first? Rent or Food? Especially when the council have a legal obligation to house you.
