Bolton Defend Council Housing
Say No to Stock Transfer
Council housing is worth defending against privatisation. There is concern that tenants are not being given full information on the case against transfer. The alternative of direct investment should be given and the risks of privatisation highlighted.
These risks include loss of secure tenancies, higher rents and charges, loss of accountability, and problems of debt and borrowing. These risks also include financial crises, job losses, pay cuts, mergers and takeovers.
We believe that rather than spend £500k of public money on costly leaflets and road shows arguing for privatisation, Bolton Council and Bolton at Home should jointly demand the necessary investment and long term sustainable financial future for council housing in Bolton that Ministers have promised.
