Diana Johnson MP today voted with Labour MPs in an attempt to abolish the unjust and unworkable Bedroom Tax, imposed by the Coalition Government.

The Hull North MP believes that households affected by this tax, including around 6,000 households in Hull, simply can’t wait until 2015 for it to be repealed.

In the Commons vote this evening most Lib Dem MPs joined their Tory Coalition partners to scupper the bid to repeal the Bedroom Tax by 252 votes to 226.

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.
