Shadow work and pensions minister Chris Bryant has accused Iain Duncan Smith of "picking numbers out of thin air", with regards to the people wrongly charged the so-called 'bedroom tax'.
Iain Duncan Smith told Parliament that 3,000 to 5,000 people had been illegally charged the 'bedroom tax' thanks to the loophole, but it's now clear he was just picking numbers out of thin air.
The bedroom tax has been a fiasco from start to finish and now the Government have been caught out trying to downplay how many people are exempted by it.
This would be a farce if it weren't for the upset this has caused many vulnerable families and the huge cost to taxpayers.
