Bedroom Tax – Bristol
June 21, 2013 2 Comments
Good news in the fight against Iain Duncan Smith’s PERVERSE bedroom tax, it is being reported that Bristol City Council in an agreement between all of the major parties and the city’s Mayor George Ferguson have apparently voted not to evict those adversely affected by this draconian cut in housing benefit. The mayor has apparently also agreed to look at reviewing the definition of a bedroom to reclassify such things as box rooms, downstairs rooms and downstairs bedrooms hopefully with a view of taking them out with the critical definition which triggers Duncan Smith’s social attack. If true this is an important step forward. It is still important however that those affected get out and make themselves heard.
