This was recorded last year when the ‘Tax’ was first introduced yet they already highlight some serious flaws in the proposal.
Elizabeth Glinka interviews epileptic Karen Firth who is one to be hit with the new Tax but explains that it is not just a spare room, it is needed. Mrs Firth lives with her husband and son in Bilston, Birmingham but insists she needs the room because when she fits she cannot share a bed.
Julie Hayward is another of those hit hardest. Mrs Hayward has had to have her home specially adapted to cater for her to live in but will be forced to move to another, unequipped home when she cannot afford the tax.
Carrin Gamble of the Bromford Living group also emphasizes that it will be disabled persons that will be hit the hardest.
