Liam Byrne MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to yet more government confusion over the Bedroom Tax, said:
“The chaos engulfing the Bedroom Tax is deepening by the day.
“Last week we learnt that even the Prime Minister doesn’t know how hard the Bedroom Tax will hit disabled children and now Ministers claim they haven’t even published all the rules yet. The whole thing is a total shambles. Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of families are in the firing line to get clobbered by this wretched policy.
“Ministers have got to get a grip of this mess fast.”
