Background Info

UK Ministers plan to implement the local housing allowance cap in April 2018. Housing benefit would be capped at the local housing allowance rate for one bedroom. The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations have stated that, as a result of this bedroom tax 2, up to 240,000 tenants in Scotland would suffer serious housing benefit cuts especially to our young people, our elderly and disabled citizens with a serious risk of many of these people being made homeless. Make no mistake this vindictive measure is designed to destroy public sector and socially rented housing in Scotland driving working class people in communities throughout the land into dire poverty so that the rich and powerful pay little or no tax. The United Kingdom is one of the most unequal countries in the world and bedroom tax 2 would further accentuate this massive inequality. We believe that in taking this issue to our Parliament there will be an increased understanding of the potential disaster ahead and we believe that progressive Parliamentarians can come together to give a considered opinion on this measure which could have a detrimental effect on the lives of our most vulnerable citizens in terms of making many of them homeless.
