A woman who was left with severe impairment after an operation went wrong, killed herself after being turned down for discretionary Housing Benefit. Her MP says, “Every bit of the way she had to fight. There’s no way that you could say the bedroom tax was the sole factor of her death, but just to get the message that she was being turned down for housing – and she did need the extra room because of all the equipment she needed – it’s not surprising that she got depressed from it all. I wanted to really make the point that this is the human side of it, that this is somebody who was fighting every day to cope, and it was just the last straw.”
