The Government’s controversial changes to housing benefits, nicknamed ‘bedroom tax’ by some, will not apply to people caring for foster children and families of armed services personnel.

The housing benefit changes, which will see tenants in council flats and social housing who are deemed to have ‘too much space’ have their rental payments cut, are due to come into effect in April.
