SNP: Abolishing 'bedroom tax' would save £50 per week

Today's White Paper devotes a section of its chapter on health, wellbeing and social protection to the so-called bedroom tax.

Abolishing the policy would assist 82,500 households in Scotland, including 63,500 with a disabled adult and 15,500 households with children.

This would save tenants an average of £50 a month, according to the White Paper.
