Are you trolling?
They are never going to subdivide up houses for the simple fact if they have a 3 bed room place vacant their is a line a mile long with family's trying to move into it
It would cost too much and the government don't even own most of the housing stock
its owned by housing associations that the government have little or no power over and they are just as annoyed with the tax as the tenants.

Pensioners are exempt from this Bedroom Tax a single old lady/man will be rattling round 2/3/4 bed houses with no issues after their family's have long flew the nest.
