NEWS ANALYSIS

Robina Rafferty: Catholic Housing Aid Society.

"ONE of the most important priorities must be the provision of an adequate stock of good quality rented accomodation at a price those on low incomes can afford. It that provision was there then many of our problems would be solved.

Another thing the government should do is to take a good look at the injustice of the housing finance system which helps those who don't need it (for example, mortgage tax relief to those on £.50,000 a year), and hits those who can't afford to do without it (subsidies for rents of poor tenants have been cut back).

There must be an acceptance, too, that single people have housing rights, and firms should be provided with inducements to relocate in places where there are currently few jobs, but where the cost of accomodation is low."

Ruth Lister: Child Poverty Action Group.
