Effects of the Stormont crash on bedroom tax mitigations…

One of the notable features of that interview with the ‘naughty ministers’ on Newsline a couple of nights ago was Paul Given’s reference to the effect of forestalling of a functional budget, which follows Sinn Fein’s hasty (and unplanned) withdrawal.

Here’s Digital View on the bedroom tax:

A screening report published by the Department for Communities found that around 34,000 households could be affected by the policy, with average losses reaching up to £20.42 per week.

Ms McCauley added: “Housing Rights would encourage urgent consideration of all available options to safeguard tenants’ homes. This should involve stakeholders including those who represent tenants and landlords.

“Regardless of the mechanism used, it is vital that those affected have the intended financial protection.”
