Welcome to a busy new year already in the campaign for homes.
The Housing Act is still stalled, with no move yet to pass the necessary regulations needed. Government have dropped the threatened Pay to Stay tenant tax, and postponed further Right to buy and sell off of council homes for at least a year.
But the Act remains a threat, until we get it all scrapped.
Ministers still want to end secure tenancies, and replace homes for rent with un-affordable mortgages. A new Housing white paper is on the way, so now is the time to demand policies to control rents and secure homes for all.
Come to our open organising meeting this Saturday 14 Jan 11.am at:
Unite Offices, 128 Theobalds Rd London WC1X 8TN.
We’ll catch up with plans, and welcome new ideas. All invited – email any reports or suggestions if you can’t make it.
