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.
