    There are no guideline amounts, but there are trigger levels(kept secret) which will prompt enquiries as to whether they are a real and allowable amount

    For food I think 200-250 is allowable for a single person, with more per adult and child

    There's no tabacco allowance, this has to come out of savings made elsewhere in your budget
