KATE Green MP has revealed National Housing Federation figures which show 1,213 people in her Stretford and Urmston constituency will be hit by the government’s ‘bedroom tax’, losing on average £728 per year.
She said the major changes to housing benefit payments, which come into force in April, will hit 660,000 households nationally.
Kate Green said: “Two thirds of the households hit include someone with a disability. Families of soldiers who are serving away from home and foster parents will also be hit.”
