EXTRA money will be spent to fully mitigate the impact of the bedroom tax in Scotland, Finance Secretary John Swinney has pledged.

He confirmed an additional £12 million has been found to take the fund up to the £50 million needed to offset the UK Government welfare reform policy.

The SNP and Labour set aside wider political differences to find a solution to the problem during negotiations on the Budget Bill.
