David Hamilton, Labour MP for Midlothian, has joined other Labour MPs in voting against the Bedroom Tax during a debate in parliament.

The Bedroom Tax has caused hardship for hundreds of thousands of people across the country, costing low-income families an average of £700 a year.

Two thirds of those hit by the Bedroom Tax have disabilities and 60,000 are carers.

In Scotland alone over 71,292 people have been affected.
