Mar 16, 2013 - Tags:

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has highlighted figures showing that 6,900 Hull families will be hit by the Bedroom Tax. These figures from the National Housing Federation include tenants of non-Council social housing in Hull, in addition to the 4,700 Hull Council tenants who will be hit by the Bedroom Tax. These households would lose an average £728 per year when the Coalition Government’s cuts in Housing Benefit start next month. Hull City Council has only around 70 smaller one and two bedroom dwellings available for these families to downsize into.

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has slammed Lib Dems for voting against their own flagship Mansion Tax policy in the House of Commons today.

After going along with the Tory tax cut for millionaires, a failing economic plan, a VAT rise and a trebling of tuition fees the Lib Dems had a chance today to finally vote for a policy that was in their manifesto – a Mansion Tax on properties worth over £2m.

Instead Lib Dem MPs joined the Tories to vote the policy down.

Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Liam Byrne is in Hull today to launch a major Labour campaign to highlight the unfairness of David Cameron's Bedroom Tax.

The launch will be the first in a series of events ahead of the introduction of the bedroom tax in April - at exactly the same time as the Government are giving 13,000 millionaires a tax cut worth £100,000 a year on average.
