Bedroom Tax – the protected pre 1996 regulations – sources and comment. It applies and exempts!

SP Eye here presents the evidence to back up their earlier post that people, who have been in receipt of Housing Benefit before 1996 are exempt from the bedroom tax. This should help very many people, who are struggling to make ends meet due to this iniquitous piece of legislation. I’ve no doubt, however, that when this gets taken up, the government will either dispute it or try to pass legislation ending it. But for the time being, it’s another blow against the tax and the hardship it causes.
