City Council takes a stand on Bedroom Tax

At this month’s meeting of the City Council, I moved a resolution calling on the Government to abolish the Bedroom Tax and setting out the steps we are taking, here in Birmingham, to deal with the effects of this pernicious measure.

The resolution, which you can read by clicking here, received the unanimous support of all Labour Councillors. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats chose not to register a vote.

You can watch the full debate by following this link. If you, a friend or family member are affected by Bedroom Tax or any of the other welfare changes, please visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/welfarereform or drop me a line via the Contact Me page.
