It is a policy that is designed to hit some of our most vulnerable citizens in the pocket.
At a time of economic uncertainty, the 'bedroom tax' is a cause of distress and upset to many.
And it's not only tenants who are having to meet the financial shortfall of the tax.
Housing associations are facing real financial strain as they see significant increases in the level of arrears they are owed by tenants who, due to the 'bedroom tax', just can't afford to pay their rent.
It's vital that we continue to have thriving housing associations in the city.
Much of the regeneration that has taken place in Glasgow over recent years has been due to the investment of housing associations.
I was delighted to hear Ed Miliband announce last week that Labour will abolish the 'bedroom tax' if the party is elected in 2015.
This is about supporting the vulnerable and creating a fairer society.
We all have a responsibility to protect people from the impact of punitive welfare reforms.
So, as well as Labour's promise to abolish the 'bedroom tax', my administration will commit to topping up the level of Discretionary Housing Payment that is available to tenants in the city to the maximum allowed.
This is funding that will be used to help those who are most affected by the bedroom tax. It's quite simply about doing the right thing.
As well as being Scotland's largest and friendliest city, Glasgow is known across the globe as a city that loves live music.
We are recognised as a UNESCO City of Music and each week there are 130 gigs that take place in the city. These are worth a massive £75million a year to our economy.
Last week I attended the opening of the new SSE Hydro, yet another world class venue in our city. Over recent months we have all seen the construction work being completed and the finished building is another iconic addition to the Glasgow skyline.
The SSE Hydro will be one of the top five music venues in the world, up there alongside Madison Square Garden and the O2 Arena, and it has the potential to boost the city's economy by £130m every year.
As well as being a venue for music, the SSE Hydro will play a key role during the 2014 Commonwealth Games when it hosts both gymnastics and netball events.
We've got the best audiences in the world and all of the biggest acts want to play in Glasgow.
Let there be no doubt that we've now got one of the best venues in the world for them to perform in.
The SSE Hydro will cement Glasgow's position on the world music scene and I'm sure that many music fans from Glasgow and across Scotland will flock there in the months and years to come.
