Bedroom Tax - under occupation

Bedroom Tax - under occupation

Postby Boo » Sat Nov 12, 2016 2:51 pm

I attended a training day for welfare reform for occupiers in rented accommodation when the judgment came out last Wednesday.

Two families won their appeals - five other claimants had their cases dismissed.

A massive hair ruffle for the campaigners who assisted these families by bringing their cases to the attention of the supreme court; Central England Law Centre, Leigh Day and the Child Poverty Action Group - without them, the families would be continuing to suffer extreme hardship.
