    Carl Sargeant, the Welsh housing minister announced that:

    “A £20 million fund designed to help Welsh households hit by the bedroom tax will be used to build 357 smaller homes.”

    He also revealed details of allocations of the fund:

    “The funding, which came from recalculations as a result of changes to Westminster-allocated budgets, will be used by social landlords to build one and two-bedroom properties.” 

    Inside Housing reported Mr. Sargeant's worries:

    ‘The Welsh Government is hugely concerned that many already hard pressed households are facing hardship due the changes in welfare benefit rules brought in by the UK Government.

    Since the rules relating to housing benefit and size of household changed on 1 April this year, we have seen increased demand for smaller, one and two-bedroom properties. 

    I am determined to do what I can to support tenants so that there is the least possible damage to our communities, but recognise that these new homes are only a fraction of what is needed to counter the impact of the UK Government's benefit changes.”
