Building homes for the future

Dave Watson has an opinion piece in the Scotsman today on UNISON Scotland's new housing policy.

He sets out the case for building and renovating homes for the 180,000 people on our housing waiting lists and the 60,000 in overcrowded homes. Yes, thats overcrowding, not something we hear much about since the introduction of the 'Bedroom Tax'.

What's different about the UNISON approach is that we set out how we might finance a new programme of house building using pension funds. Better than investing in tobacco companies.

A fairer and more prosperous Scotland needs better housing. Here is how to do it.
