Bedroom Tax: Labour MP Rachel Reeves condemns disgraceful squeeze on hungry families which affects 375,000 children

 
Children in homes hit by the Bedroom Tax are going hungry as their parents are forced to squeeze family food budgets.
As many as 375,000 youngsters are affected by the hated tax, new figures show.
Families who have been unable to move home are now worse off by £13.60 a week on average – £709 per year.
Labour, which has pledged to axe the tax, says desperate parents are turning to foodbanks to feed their kids or taking pay-day loans.
Writing in the Daily Mirror today, shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Rachel Reeves says David Cameron has no idea of the havoc and distress the Coalition policy is causing to ordinary families across the country.
One housing association, Magenta Living in Liverpool, is considering demolishing three-bed homes it can no longer let.
