Labour leader Ed Miliband will pledge to repeal the controversial housing benefit reform known as the spare room subsidy - or the 'bedroom tax' - if his party win the next General Election in 2015.
But what is the 'bedroom tax'?
- Those living in social housing who are deemed to have a spare bedroom have been asked to downsize or they will face a cut in their benefits.
- The 'bedroom tax' is believed to affect 660,000 tenants across the country.
- The coalition have made this change in a bid to save money and help deal with the housing shortage by encouraging those in larger homes to downsize.
