I disagree, I don't think it's classed as a vacant bedroom if you have people in there most days. I think it means on people with big mansions where people could stay. I think this is a good tax and will tax those a lot with many homes who don't need to have so many unvacant bedrooms.

This is an absolute disgrace. I love how the love the look after the rich in this country, maybe the should concentrate a little more on the people that are ripping the benefit system off I bet they would save a mint there. Our honest people are living on the minimum as it is while we are paying for all those folk who should not even be in the country. The government is shocking and I don't see them getting voted back in unless they start making a difference to those who actually need it....

My aunt is living in a 2 bed on her own but they can't offer her a 1 bed place in the area she has been living in for the past 50 years so she is expected to pay this or move away from everything she knows. Unbelievable.

I can't have a couple of spare rooms for visiting family, but an MP can have two entire houses paid for out of my taxes. Disgraceful!

My better half has just raised a question : who decides what is a "bedroom", and what is a "study" or other kind of room? Maybe, when the council tries to make someone pay extra because they have "3 bedrooms", the response should be "No, I have 2 bedrooms, and a study."... :)

My Daughter lives in a 3 bed house she has 2 children a boy and a girl she has been told she has 2 pay the so called spare room tax because they are both under 10 so they should share but before this room tax when she was biding for a house she was told she couldn't have a 2 bed as she had a boy and a girl but how can they say she has to pay for a room that isn't in use when all 3 bedrooms are in use?
