That this House welcomes the recent analysis in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle of the serious impact of the Government's bedroom tax which will penalise families for under-occupying their social home even if they have nowhere else to move to; notes that people deemed to be under-occupying their social homes will see their benefit cut by up to 88 per month; further notes that this will have a devastating impact on families in the North East as the region with the highest number of people deemed to be under-occupying; and urges the Government to commission detailed research into the impact of the bedroom tax in the North East and reconsider the policy in the light of this.
