What did I hear? There are five million people on the waiting list to be housed? I don’t see any housing shortage. Look above any shops in any town and you will see any amount of empty property.

Not all have side or back entrances, but plenty do. Why aren’t shop owners being encouraged to let these properties? Not everyone wants a garden and many people would like to be in a busy part of town. I wrote this same letter years ago and nothing has changed.
