Minister Ducks Sutton's Housing Concerns

May 11, 2006 2:11 PM

In spite of assurances given by Housing Minister Yvette Cooper after a housing debate a few days ago that there was no prospect of her meeting with Tom Brake MP to discuss the shortage of affordable housing in Sutton being cancelled again, it has now been scrapped for the fourth or fifth time.

Tom Brake said, "The excuse this time was the Government re-shuffle."

Tom Brake, who is seeking to raise with the Housing Minister residents' concerns about the lack of affordable housing in Sutton, where thousands of families are on the housing waiting list added, "I will give the Minister one more chance and then I will raise the matter in Business Questions. The Minister has had more cancellations than Connex did when they were running rail services locally and its time her performance was brought back on track."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
