COUNCIL MEETING HALTED AS COUNCILLOR LINES MISLEADS AGAIN
During the meeting of Birmingham City Council cabinet member for housing councillor John Lines again made the statement that the city were working well with the housing associations.
JUSTICE NOT CRISIS campaigners responded by telling the assembled councillors the truth which is that this administration was preventing housing associations from building more homes for social rent by blocking land sales at an affordable price.
The meeting as halted and three activists left the meeting.
It is reported that on the restart of the meeting councillor Lines lost the plot and made comments which we believe have seen a challenge from the Labour and Respect parties as well as some Lib Dems.
We look forward to seeing the minutes of the meeting which will be updated here.
