Bedroom Tax – Labour wins the vote today… but this isn’t the end!


This afternoon MPs voted through a Bill that would reduce the number of people affected by the Bedroom Tax with a majority of 75.

Labour MPs will try to amend the bill so it abolishes the Bedroom Tax completely.

David Cameron and Nick Clegg’s cruel and unfair Bedroom Tax has hit hundreds of thousands of people across the country causing misery, hardship and forcing families to rely on food banks.

If the government won’t ditch the Bedroom Tax, then the next Labour government will.
