Question

Are you aware that Lambeth Council is taking members of 30+ year old housing co-ops to court to try and evict them from their homes and sell their houses off on the open market - thus reducing the number of social housing units in the borough and adding to their own waiting list? Could you urge Lambeth Council to engage with the Super Co-op plan that the housing co-op residents have advanced, which would further your housing policies on tenant and community empowerment?
