We hold our Housing fringe event to promote additional investment options for social housing, the event is run jointly with the Association for Retained Council Housing. As the event is kicking off we hear that the Labour Party National Executive has agreed that they will pursue proposals to create additional options over the next three or four months. I sense that something could be achievable on this front, if it is then this is something the Association has lobbied hard for since 1999 and it would see the achievement of the aims of one of our longest ever campaigns.
There will still be a massive amount of work to do in the coming months to develop options that the Treasury can buy into.
