Labour would abolish ‘bedroom tax’ in 2015

Labour would abolish the spare room subsidy if elected in 2015, the party's Scottish welfare spokeswoman has said.

We are very clear. Labour rejected this approach when it was put to them in government, for social landlords. We have campaigned for its abolition.

Yes we will abolish it. My understanding is that you can expect an announcement relatively soon.
