Bedroom tax protest

Protestors angry at the government's so-called bedroom tax will stage another demonstration in Carlisle on Saturday 30th March.

Demonstration one of 50 across the UK

The protest will be held on Saturday in Carlisle and will be the second in the city as part of a national campaign against benefit cuts.

Around 100 people attended the last Carlisle event earlier this month.

Under the proposals, which are due to be brought in as part of the Government's wider welfare reforms, people with unoccupied bedrooms face having to move to smaller properties or having their benefit payments cut.

The protest will be held at the Old Town Hall from 1pm.
