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

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.

On Equal Pay Day Hull North MP Diana Johnson called for action for equal pay between women and men.

Equal Pay Day is the day on which women effectively stop being paid for the year because of the gender pay gap.

The date for Equal Pay Day of 7 November is set by the latest pay statistics, which show that women working full-time earn 14.9% less per hour (excluding overtime) than men working full-time in the same jobs. In many professions the gender pay gap is far greater than 14.9%.
