The French gov­ern­ment has an­nounced it will re­duce per­sonal hous­ing al­lowances ( APL) from Oc­to­ber this year in a bid to save €100m in 2017 alone. Some 6.5 mil­lion French peo­ple cur­rently re­ceive these hous­ing ben­e­fits every month but the gov­ern­ment wants to cut them by €5 a month. Stu­dents rely heav­ily on such help for their rent and the stu­dent syn­di­cates, along with or­gan­i­sa­tions help­ing the poor­est, have called for the gov­ern­ment to back-track on the de­ci­sion.
