DWP: 'Only right we bring fairness back to the system'

A day of action will take place tomorrow against the Government's 'bedroom tax' proposals.

A spokesperson for the Department for Work and Pensions said:

It's only right that we bring fairness back to the system - when in England alone there are nearly two million households on the social housing waiting list and over a quarter of a million tenants are living in overcrowded homes. We are giving councils an extra £150m this year so that they can help their vulnerable tenants.
