NotesNews: 26 Jan: "... In April, the housing benefit paid to families like the Holdens will be changed by a new set of rules, outlined in last year's Welfare Reform Act. What's about to arrive is widely known as the "spare bedroom tax", and is a central part of the government's radical changes to social security (which also include a planned real-terms cut in most working-age benefits). It's targeted at what officialspeak terms "under-occupation": if you live in social housing and are deemed to be one bedroom over, your housing benefit will be docked by 14%; if it's two or more, 25%. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people who live on very tight incomes are faced with a choice: either stay in their homes and somehow find the money, or move somewhere else. ...
