Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has said the bedroom tax will not be introduced in the North.
Mr McCartney said;
“Despite scaremongering by some political parties, Sinn Fein have ensured that the bedroom tax will not be introduced in the north.
“I want to reassure anyone who may have received a letter concerning the bedroom tax that it will not apply here.
“A package of mitigations, secured by Sinn Féin, is in place so that tenants here will not be penalised by this unfair Tory tax.” Ends/Críoch
