Defend Council Housing

Issue No. 1846

COUNCIL TENANTS in Nuneaton and Bedworth have voted decisively to reject plans to privatise their homes. The Labour council wanted to privatise over 7,000 homes. But in a ballot with a 70 percent turnout 60 percent of tenants rejected the plan.

'Council tenants are not stupid. We saw through the council's spin and organised to fight off privatisation,' says Tony Ault of the local Defend Council Housing campaign. 'We'd like to thank our friends in the trade unions for their support for our campaign.'
