About 6% of people hit by bedroom tax have moved home figures show

A year after housing benefits were cut for council tenants with spare rooms, figures show 30,000 have moved.

About 6% of benefit claimants affected by the bedroom tax have moved as a result of the benefit changes, according to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act.

Reforms to cut housing benefit from council tenants with spare rooms have saved taxpayers £1m a day since they were imposed a year ago, according to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
