Fresh Start Agreement protects people from so-called bedroom tax - Maskey
Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has said people in the North will be protected from the so-called bedroom tax as a result of the protections secured in the Fresh Start Agreement.
Ms Maskey said;
"In recent days households may have received letters outlining a number of changes to the welfare system, including the so-called bedroom tax.
“The Fresh Start Agreement secured full mitigation for the so-called bedroom tax for all Housing Executive and housing association tenants.
"Those protections are unique to the North and will help thousands of people across our communities."
