    Setting up a business to bring the spare room into use could help tenants hit by the spare room subsidiary escape the tax, says Earl John Atlee.

    Before setting up the business tenants would first need to get permission from either council or housing association.

    Chris Bryant, shadow welfare minister, told the Sunday People: “Instead of dressing up this unfair bedroom tax as a business opportunity, they [the government] should be scrapping it.”
