What can we do to support people on low incomes in Camden to thrive?

The bedroom tax is a punitive and regressive tax that affects teh most vulnerable in our society. As a Council we should be doing everything in our power to help our residents, not punishing them for having to many bedrooms. There is a chronic shortage of housing throughout London and people on benefits should not be punished by having to pay an unfair and unjust bedroom tax. Stand up against the attacks on the welfare state and cuts to public services.
