Opponents of the Government's plans to withhold benefits from some social housing tenants, deemed to have spare rooms, are today launching a legal challenge against the so-called 'bedroom tax'.
Earlier this week, David Cameron pledged to look at "any individual case" relating to the change in rules as the Government's plans were attacked by a string of opposition MPs.
The Prime Minister said the move was not a tax, explaining that "a tax is when someone earns money, it is their money and the Government takes some of it away."
The under-occupancy charge sees housing benefit payments reduced for tenants in council or housing association properties with empty bedrooms.
