A housing association which offered a free Creme Egg to tenants affected by the so-called 'bedroom tax' has defended its offer.
Tenants who have been affected by the so-called 'bedroom tax' have been offered a 60p Creme Egg by their Housing Association as a reward for keeping up with rent payments.
Housing association Valleys to Coast (V2C), based in Bridgend, sent a letter to tenants to thank them for payments.
The letter, signed by Head of Neighbourhoods Nigel Draper, said: "The Bedroom Tax was introduced just over one year ago and Valleys to Coast Housing would like to thank you for your efforts to pay this shortfall.
"As well as thanking you by letter we would also like to offer you as a small thank you by offering a free Crème Egg should you call into the office during the month of April."
Following a protest march in Cardiff calling for an end to the so-called 'bedroom tax', the Department of Work and Pensions say the reforms are 'necessary' in order to restore fairness to the system and make a better use of social housing.
Protesters are marching through Cardiff as part of a UK-wide day of action calling for an end to the so-called 'bedroom tax'.
Campaign group, Cardiff & South Wales Against the Bedroom Tax will be joined by AMs and MPs as well as members of the clergy on the rally through the city centre.
They say the policy, which was introduced a year ago, is breaking up families and dividing communities.
The Department of Work and Pensions say the removal of the spare room subsidy restores fairness and saves the taxpayer money.
There are warnings tonight that the so-called 'bedroom tax' is causing chaos and confusion, as thousands of people who thought they were liable to pay it are discovering they're not.
Under the rules, anyone who has been in their home since 1996 or before - and has continually claimed housing benefit - does NOT have to pay.
One Cardiff resident told ITV News she was 'outraged' at having to watch people in her community downsize when they didn't have to, as well as the fact that she might now be owed money herself.
The Department for Work and Pensions says it is looking at the issue carefully and will act as necessary.
It is estimated that 5,000 people in Wales who are paying a spare room subsidy could - and should - have been exempt.
Under the rule, anyone who has been in their home since before 1996 and has continually claimed housing benefit does not have to pay the subsidy.
A spokesperson for the Department of Work and Pensions say they are looking at the issue carefully and will take any necessary action.
Nearly 80% of people receiving housing benefit in Wales are falling behind with their rent payments. Figures from Community Housing Cymru show that there aren't enough suitable homes available so that people can downsize. Alexandra Lodge reports.
