|200 make case for council housing at inquiry
200 tenants, councillors, officers and trade unionists took part in the House of Commons Council Housing Group's inquiry at Parliament on 25 Feb.
14 MPs heard verbal evidence from 27 delegations, dozens of local authorities, tenants organisations and trade unions have submitted written evidence and many met their MPs whilst at Westminster.
Delegations called for an end to the robbery. They made a strong argument that government has to stop charging tenants for historic debt. Everyone agreed that rents and receipts should be ring-fenced to fund the management, maintenance and improvement of our homes, although there is a debate about whether the national HRA should be maintained.
