National Housing Federation figures show that nearly 2,000 Rother Valley residents will be hit by the Government’s ‘Bedroom Tax’, losing on average £728 per year.

The Bedroom Tax will hammer local families already struggling to make ends meet, and could actually risk costing local tax-payers a fortune in higher private rents and covering the cost of driving people out of their homes.

Two thirds of the households hit are home to someone with a disability, whilst the families of soldiers and foster parents will also be hit. Yet at the same time the Government is giving a massive £100,000 tax cut to 13,000 millionaires.
