Will the introduction of the bedroom tax mean less grans staying over?

I don't think it will mean less Grans staying over. After all, if you've got a free babysitter, you should at least offer her your bed and relocate to the sofa!!

As far as I am aware, this only applies to people of working age, however many people who are retired do not realise this (It is not made clear), and having bought their family house, are now in a 3 bedroom house with two people in it.

I have spoken to a few friends (Yes- I am retired) and hopefully have stopped them worrying that they are going to get a big demand for 'Unused space' in the homes.
