If anybody here will be affected by Bedroom Tax, please email me 'how' as I am gathering evidence to submit to a Council Scrutiny Review Panel that I am attending- a closed meeting to be held within a fortnight.

All emails will be kept confidential.
Thankyou.

Thanks for all the info you've provided on this Rude.

Do you know the answers to these questions please?

How will they be able to enforce this? There are only so many 1/2/3 bedroomed social housing properties available? If there is no suitable social housing accomodation available in the area you're living in, would you be expected to move some distance?

If you're in social housing because you're on min wage then your salary increases, do you have to move out or can you pay an increased amount of rent?

Hi Zubee

I can only attempt to answer your first question.

Wirral B.C has 0.7% of 1 bedroomed homes needed for people who 'could' downsize.

There is a group on facebook set up by a good intended wiki member for people to exchange homes, in Wirral
It's all good for 2/3 bed swaps. However, nothing for 1>3 or 3>1 swaps. Surprise surprise!

Precisley why I believe this Tax is unfair and unjust!!

What about disabled people with adjusted homes?
Pets?

Grrrr.......I'm going to Shut Up now. I could rant on and on and on

Im hoping to channel my anger and be constructive with it....

See htttp://www.facebook.com/groups/antibedroomtax

Contrary to common belief, thanks to the shit spouted in the papers, this Tax affects Low Paid Workers, not just 'Scroungers'.

I gather you do not mind paying the MPs housing benefit for their 2nd homes & the mortgage interest on their main homes?

My MP claims 18,140,00 housing benefit/expenses for her london flat per yr .The TAXPAYER IS PAYING HER TOO MUCH HOUSING BENEFIT do you think it is FAIR that people who earn the minimum wage, who receive some help with housing benefit will lose that same benefit if they have spare bedrooms, and they are subsidising HER 18,140.00 rent for HER london flat.
AND THEN NOT TO MENTION THE UNEMPLOYED, how on earth does this government expect the unemployed to make up the difference out of their benefits to pay the bedroom tax?. When the MPs require help from the taxpayer to pay for their accommadation

I have to say "What a great idea"
The government need to save money "FACT!"
Why should people receive housing benefit to live in a house that's too big for them.
