Intervention on the bedroom tax

Mike Kane (Wythenshawe and Sale East) (Lab)

My constituency has the highest number of bedroom tax cases in the country, with more than 3,000 families affected. I want to raise the case of Mr Tony Gunning in my constituency. He needs regular kidney dialysis and he does not get a discretionary payment because he lives in Tory Trafford. If he had lived in Labour Manchester in my constituency, he would have got the discretionary payment. He has been hit twice by the Conservative party.

Damian Green

I have said that I hope local authorities will claim the discretionary housing payments that are available to them, and I say that to all local authorities.‚Äč
