Scrap bedroom tax

ANGUS MP Mike Weir has supported calls by his SNP colleague and work and pensions spokesperson Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP for the UK government to abandon the bedroom tax.

Commenting on the matter Mr Weir said: “The most disadvantaged people in Scotland, including single parents and disabled adults, will still be deeply affected, despite over 90 per cent of Scotland’s MPs voting against this iniquitous measure

“Angus Council have indicated that around 600 of their tenants will be affected and the National Federation of Housing Associations have indicated that the total numbers affected in Angus will be more than double that.”
