Taxpayers will 'resent' paying for spare rooms

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.
