We’ve had a busy and productive month. We had several days of intensive lobbying and leafleting at Labour Party conference. This led into a good fringe meeting, with 40 people from a range of places and backgrounds. The over-arching message was the need to step up our demands, and build a united, national campaign to win Homes for All.
Regarding the Government green paper on housing there are three main issues to be aware of are a) threat of new stock transfer programme b) use of league tables for housing services c) setting up of National Tenant Voice. All of these could be used to advance privatisation and/or fake council housing (e.g. by use of local housing companies).
Our next meeting will be on Monday 8th October, 7pm, National Education Union HQ, Hamilton House, Mabeldon Place, London WC1H 9BD
