Bedroom Tax question at next Northampton Borough Council meeting
Question Council meeting 20th January 2014
To Councillor Mary Markham
Tenants are exempt from the bedroom tax if they meet BOTH the following conditions:
1. They have continuously received Housing Benefit (full HB or 1p per week) on or before 1 January 1996, AND
2. They have lived in the same property since 1 January 1996
Can you give assurance that the above conditions were taken into account and that the bedroom tax as NOT been imposed on ANY Tenant(s) meeting the above conditions?
