Protestors expected outside Scottish Parliament

Campaigners will be protesting outside the Scottish Parliament calling for more to be done to help households that are being affected by the so-called Bedroom Tax.

"The Scottish Budget presents the first opportunity to offer much-needed hope to those affected by the bedroom tax in Scotland and we call on John Swinney to start the ball rolling by committing £20 million extra funding."

– Graeme Brown, Director, Shelter Scotland
