The Government has always refused to define a minimum bedroom size, but following a number of test cases it was ruled in 2013 that a room measuring less than 50 square feet is not a bedroom.

A room between 50 and 70 sqft is only suitable as a bedroom for a child aged under ten, and authorities must take into account the long-established uses of a room.
