Scottish Government announce Housing Bill
September 3 2009
Designed to create a property owning democracy in Britain the Act has seen home ownership rocket since 1980 with some half a million council homes being sold off.
Critics point out however that the resulting shortage of accommodation available to new social housing applicants has created a generation gap. Around one in four Scottish households, some 600,000, currently rely on social housing.
The Bill will be introduced in early 2010.
