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.
Our reforms are necessary to restore fairness to the system and make a better use of social housing.
We are saving the taxpayer £1m a day, but we have given councils £345m since reforms came in last year to support vulnerable groups.
The removal of the spare room subsidy means we still pay the majority of most claimants' rent. But the taxpayer no longer covers the costs of extra bedrooms, so we can free up bigger homes for people forced to live in cramped, overcrowded accommodation.
