'Bedroom tax' disability cost 'waste', says housing association
Changes in housing benefit payments affecting disabled people could cost the public purse millions of pounds in Wales, a housing association has said.
Wales & West Housing (WWH) said many disabled tenants may be forced to move because of the so-called "bedroom tax".
It said it could result in millions more being spent adapting properties.
The UK government said it had given Wales £7.9m for a discretionary fund tenants could apply for but WWH said that may not be enough to cover costs.
