Local woman to lose £400 per year to ‘bedroom tax’


A STRABANE woman has revealed how she stands to lose £400 per year when the so called ‘bedroom tax’ is implemented.
The 33-year-old, who asked not to be named, told the Strabane Chronicle that her housing benefit will be cut by £32 per month when the welfare changes take hold. She is one of around 32,000 social housing tenants across the North set to be affected by the tax.
