So the 'bedroom tax' was actually introduced by the Labour government in 2001. Pretty hypocritical, huh?
Malcolm Wicks MP, the then Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, said on the 19th December 2001:
"The under-occupation pilot encourages housing benefit recipients living in under-occupied social housing to move to smaller and cheaper accommodation in order to make more efficient use of housing stock."
I think Labour need to be reminded of this next time they have a little cry.
I also appreciate that the 'bedroom tax' isn't in any way a tax, but that's what they've chosen to call it so it makes sense to use it in this instance.
