The National Housing Federation has claimed that the government's move to exempt foster carers and armed forces personnel from the so-called 'bedroom tax' amounts to an admission that the policy is "ill-thought through and incompetent".
The bedroom tax is still an unfair and perverse tax which will hit hundreds of thousands of other vulnerable people living in social housing around the country.
They are being penalised for a weak housing policy that for years has failed to build enough affordable homes and reduce the housing benefit bill.
Today's concession is an admission that the bedroom tax is ill-thought and incompetent.
The Government must repeal this ill-conceived policy, but at the very least right now it must exempt disabled and other vulnerable people from these cuts.
