Thousands attend Housing Bill protest

Thousands of people have marched through central London to oppose the Government’s Housing Bill. Demonstrators claim the Bill, which requires councils to change how they charge tenants with a combined income of more than £30,000 outside of London and £40,000 in the capital, is an attack on council house tenants. A spokesman for the DCLG said: "The Housing Bill makes sure we make the best use of social housing based on need and income, while reinvesting in building new homes.”
