  • ?With the seriousness of the issues being discussed in Parliament isn't it time the CIH's started to use stronger language in terms of feedback. There are very clear views coming from the sector expressing profound concerns about some of these policy issue. We need to be highlighting at every opportunity that the inability of the majority of people on a low income or Housing Benefits in the south of England can't access LHA private rent and with the freeze for the next 4 years on LHA the rest of the country will be in the same boat too. Supporting extra money for shared ownership is not good with this level of housing catastrophe facing millions - we need to be highlighting at every chance the human implications of these policies and to take a stronger stance as it's not clever to be able to say" told you so" after the event as it's not easy to dismantle legislation on the statute book.
