Pensioner “bedroom tax” could save £400m

A survey by the Sunday Telegraph suggests that councils in central London would save an average of £1.2m each if the Department for Work and Pensions extended the spare rooms subsidy policy to pensioners; and if that were repeated across the UK it would generate savings of about £400m a year. Specific examples are highlighted such as Glasgow City Council which would save the DWP £8.7m a year, and Manchester City Council which would save £6.9mIn London, Wandsworth Council would save £168,000 a year.
