    Whilst I wish you luck I see that only 18 people have signed you will need nearer 100,000 to stand any chance of getting it to parliament, so I won't be adding my name sorry

    Disabled people can already apply for an extra bedroom if they are claiming either daily living PIP, DLA mid/high rate care, ADP daily living and they need regular overnight care.

    They can also apply if they can't share a room with their partner because of their health condition. They must also be claiming one of the above benefits.

    If they have children that also can't share a bedroom with another child because of their disability. The child must also be claiming one of the benefits listed above.

    It also doesn't apply to those of state pension age and above.

    Being disabled doesn't automatically entitle anyone to an extra bedroom. Though this doesn't mean i agree with the bedroom tax.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
