The housing issue we face is one of supply not allocation. But there is a perception that migrants are favoured in the allocation of scarce social and council housing. Not true, says the Equalities and Human Rights Commission. And the Housing Minister, John Healey MP agrees.
If the issue is supply and not allocation then why all this local people first stuff? Surely that just plays into the perception that migrants are favoured in some way and is politically and socially highly dangerous. Just a thought.
