Jonathan Isaby from the TaxPayers' Alliance said taxpayers would "resent" paying for spare rooms for those receiving housing benefits "when they can't have one themselves."
He said: "I'm not saying that there aren't people who do need those rooms but you can't have a blanket exemption for hundreds and thousands of people."
Campaigners against the Government's so-called 'bedroom tax' will take to the streets tomorrow in protest of the proposals.
