Request

How many MP's will be affected by the bedroom tax on their taxpayer funded privately rented accomodation?


Response

IPSA holds does not hold the information that you request.

In responding to your request, we have assumed that by ‘bedroom tax’, you are referring to changes to Housing Benefit under the Welfare Reform Act which are due to come into force from April 2013, relating to the under-occupancy of properties.

IPSA does not pay Housing Benefit to Members of Parliament.
