Conservative party chairman Grant Shapps provoked scorn from Government critics today by using his own children’s living arrangements in an attempt to justify the controversial “bedroom tax”.
Mr Shapps said housing benefit claimants should not mind giving up spare bedrooms because his two sons share a room. He also has a young daughter. But it subsequently emerged the millionaire former housing minister’s children could have their own space if one of the four bedrooms in the family home hadn’t been converted into a study.
