YOUR LETTERS: My fears for social housing
More than a quarter of a million people in England woke up homeless this morning. Some will have slept rough, some are in grim B&Bs, and others are in old office buildings that have been converted into human warehouses.
This is an emergency. It’s eating away at our society one family at a time. What should the priority housing policy be?
Certainly not a “big new idea” that’s simply a revamp of David Cameron’s failed Starter Homes initiative. The First Homes scheme is a comfort blanket only at a time when we desperately need properly affordable housing.
