Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

Citizens Advice apparently advised my periodic tenant yesterday that she can move out immediately by signing a letter agreeing to DPS releasing the deposit to me. I suppose, technically, she has given her one month notice and paid her final month’s rent in the form of the deposit.
She is at liberty to vacate any time during that one month notice period.
I can complain that she is not supposed to use the deposit to pay the final month’s rent but then what can I do about it that isn’t counter productive?
I thought CAB a bit irresponsible with their advice but then I don’t know what was said.
Meanwhile, now that the tenant has physically vacated (on the same day of giving notice), who is responsible for the Council Tax during that one month notice period?
