Irrespective of the "law" or the "rules", any honest person, anyone with a shred of decency, would know that claiming a rented room as a main home so that one's actual home, owned, containing their partner, children and almost all personal belongings can be declared as a second home so as to gain larger amounts of cash is blatant milking of the system.
The Home Secretary cannot be allowed to escape this. Her behaviour is "conduct unbecoming".
Is there ONE member of the Cabinet that is not an utter disgrace? No, there is not.
