Mass Sleep Out at Milton Keynes Railway Station

As part of a nationwide protest against what has been labelled bedroom tax, 30 Milton Keynes residents camped outside Milton Keynes railway station last Saturday. Strictly speaking, it is not a tax on bedrooms. The government introduced changes to the housing benefit scheme earlier this year which removes the spare room subsidy. The changes will affect over half a million tenants in the social sector that currently receive help with their rent.
