bedroom tax -> φόρος του υπνοδωματίου

...«φόρο του υπνοδωματίου» (bedroom tax) που έχει επιβάλει ο βρετανός πρωθυπουργός Ντέιβιντ Κάμερον: ο φόρος αυτός προβλέπει μείωση του στεγαστικού επιδόματος για όσους έχουν «άδεια» υπνοδωμάτια.

Among the provisions of the Act are changes to housing benefit which came into force on 1 April 2013. These changes include an "under-occupancy penalty" which reduces the amount of benefit paid to claimants if they are deemed to have too much living space in the property they are renting. Although the Act does not introduce any new direct taxes, the penalty for rooms classified as "spare bedrooms" has been characterised by the Labour Party and some in the media as the "Bedroom Tax", linking it with the public debate about the "Poll Tax" in the 1990s. Advocating the Act, the Chancellor of the Exchequer stated that the changes would reduce welfare dependency and support working families.
