  • Walsall SUE Committee approved a statement which is on this website about an impact of the coming Welfare Reform Act 2012. In summary:

    'The Government has decided people who get Housing Benefit to pay their rent may have to pay some of the rent themselves. This will be if they have one or two spare bedrooms. The Government has decided to count spare bedrooms in a way that many people think is unfair. People who have spare bedrooms will have to pay more to live in their house. There are not enough houses and flats with one or two bedrooms for all the people who might need them. It is unfair to suddenly charge people extra for living in their home when there is nowhere for them to move to. Walsall SUE think the bedroom tax is unfair.'

     

    Walsall Disability Forum is meeting soon to see what can be done to ask the Government to think again about this bedroom tax.
