CPAG is urgently looking for bedroom tax cases

2 February 2016

CPAG is urgently looking for case studies following the Court of Appeal’s decision in R(Rutherford) v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions [2016] EWCA Civ 29, which is likely to be appealed to the Supreme Court. We are keen to hear about any families with disabled children who have been affected by the housing benefit size criteria (or “the bedroom tax”) because they need an extra room for a carer or carers to stay overnight. The families may be renting in the private or the social rented sector. If you are an adviser who has seen people in this situation or a claimant who is personally affected please email CPAG on testcases@cpag.org.uk before 10 February 2016.
