LIB DEM COUNCILLORS TAKE THE LEAD
AT last Socially rented homes will be debated in Birmingham, no thanks to Councillor John Lines, who we thought was the Cabinet member for Housing !!
Housing and Urban Regeneration Overview and Scrutiny Committee (HUROS) Chair, Councillor Emily Cox (Lib-Dem Moseley and Kings Heath) yesterday stated that the Scrutiny Committee will hold an investigation into the provision of socially rented homes in the City. Supported by her Lib-Dem colleague Cllr Ian Bowen (Lib Dem Acocks Green) it was announced the inquiry will be held in the New Year. JUSTICE NOT CRISIS fully supports the decision and thanks the Councillors for finally recognising this issue needs debate.
We would also like to thank Cllr Bowen for his invitation on today’s stirrer forum to meet with us, and to John Hemming Lib – Dem MP, Yardley for his written question in the House of commons on the availability of grants.

Other news : Cllr Mike Leddy (Lab Brandwood) reaffirmed his support for our campaign when questioned by Cllr Beadman (Conservative, Sutton New Hall) about his support of our demonstrations. TO clarify once and for all. The Councillors who appear on this site as supporters have only affirmed their support for our desire to see more socially rented properties built in Birmingham, none of them were aware of any of our planned demo’s prior to them taking place.
OUR CAMPAIGN CONTINUES…….. THANKS TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS AND MANY THOUSANDS OF WELL WISHERS.
