Council housing

THE "TENANTS' Manifesto" launched by trade unions and housing campaigners is attracting growing support. At least 19 Labour MPs and one Liberal Democrat have backed the eight-point manifesto.

The Socialist Alliance has pledged that all its candidates will support it. The manifesto centres on demands to stop privatisation of council housing, and for public investment in council housing instead.

A 70-strong meeting in London last week launched a campaign to win support for the manifesto. Similar meetings are planned elsewhere.
