Welfare reforms will cut the amount of benefit that people can get if they are deemed to have a spare bedroom in their council or housing association home. This measure will apply from April 2013 to tenants of working age.
The power to do this is contained in the Welfare Reform Act 2012 and is commonly referred to as the bedroom tax, size criteria or under-occupation penalty.
Poor people and families will get hit by this bedroom tax and I'm asking for David Cameron and Mark Prisk to resign. I'm also calling for a general election.
