Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Liam Byrne will be launching a major Labour campaign to highlight the unfairness of David Cameron's Bedroom Tax, in Hull on Monday 4 March.
The launch will be the first in a series of events ahead of the introduction of the bedroom tax in April - at exactly the same time as the Government are giving 13,000 millionaires a tax cut worth £100,000 a year on average.
Ahead of the launch, Liam Byrne said,
"David Cameron's April tax plan is simply not fair. From next month, 13,000 millionaires are getting a tax cut worth £100,000 a year on average while over 600,000 armed forces families, disabled people and foster carers have to find £728 a year to pay a new bedroom tax.
"Yet the plan is such a shambles that someone who's been to prison on a short sentence won't have to pay. How unfair is that? Millionaires and prisoners are looked after but vulnerable people, carers and armed forces families get hit.
"Labour plan relentless pressure on this out of touch government until Ministers see sense, admit this policy is totally unfair and think again.”
