I agree with bedroom tax if you have more rooms that you don't need and you don't pay your own rent then yes you should pay for your extra rooms people on benefits get so much its about time they payed something back or if they don't wont to pay for the extra rooms then move them out to somewhere that is the write size

I have a fifty year old son, with very poor health, which has been aggrevated by the spare room tax. He has lived in his rented home for twenty years+ and obviously this problem of spare rooms is very distressing making his health problems much worse. By all means make a change but not with the sick and vunerable.

I know people who are on benefits that are given houses with far more bedrooms than they need and in some cases they are given a garage when they don't even drive. I can't afford to rent a property with a garage or more bedrooms than I need, so why should the government fund this lifestyle for others. I think this new law is perfectly acceptable, if the tenants don't like it they should be re-homed to a more suitable property.

Living in the states, I feel for you guys. I would like to know though: Aren't you already taxed on the value of your house/property. We are here and if I have a three or four bedroom house (for example) my value (and thus tax) is higher than someone with a two bedroom house. Therefore I am taxed for the extra rooms whether I use it or not. If the same is true there then you are already taxed on the extra room. Another 'use' tax would be double taxation. Not?

the amount of people who are worrying and stressing
over this rediculase aťtempt to get more more cash is criminal. tenants are being made to pay the price of council cock ups e.g. selling off homes but doing nothing to replace them the list is endless and the price is now causing stress and worry to thousands of vunerable people. shame ón them

If things are so bad in this country you have to charge a bedroom tax I suggest you reduce overseas aid which has been doubled. We have food agencies giving people free food parcels other wise their children would starve. Yes times are hard in this country at the moment so please help our people and any money left over please then give aid. Have this Government not heard the saying Charity begins at Home.
