Calls to change the spare room subsidy

Dr Steve Davies features on the Jeremy Vine Show


Dr Steve Davies, Education Director at the IEA, appears on the BBC Jeremy Vine Show to discuss the consequences associated with the removal of the spare room subsidy. Claims have been made that the reform discriminates against individuals with disabilities. In the interview, Steve makes the point that there should be a procedure whereby people with disabilities can apply for discretionary exemption on a case by case basis.
