Spare Bedroom Tax

As of 1st April 2013, families who are deemed to have too much living space will receive a reduced payment in Housing Benefits. Those who will suffer are parents whose children only visit during the weekend and on odd occasions.

This may result in children losing the ability to spend longer periods of time with the non-resident parent or alternatively siblings living with different parents so that both parents can maintain their households.
