- West Country (E)
People in towns and cities across the West Country gave up part of their Easter weekend to protest against the so-called, "bedroom tax" which takes effect next week.
Under the Government rules, more than half a million social housing tenants, deemed to have a spare bedroom, will have their benefits cut.
Wesley Smith reports:
From April 1 2012 major changes will be made to the benefits system. And 2 million people will face a 25% cut in housing support.
The new 'bedroom tax' comes into force in April 2013. Here we explain how it will work and who will be affected.
