Armed forces personnel to be exempt from housing benefit changes

The Government has announced that the families of armed forces personnel are to be exempt from the controversial deductions in housing benefit - the so-called bedroom tax - as part of the Government's effort to clamp down on under-occupied social housing.

Detailed regulations are being drawn up, and will be scrutinised by BAFF.
