Bruzon to monitor new Housing Points System

GSLP/Liberals spokesman for Housing Charles Bruzon has reacted to the announcement of a new points system being adopted by the Ministry for Housing.

In a statement Mr Bruzon said he hoped this will not be used “simply as a smoke screen for inaction in other areas.” Mr Bruzon said:

“We will obviously monitor the effects of this system on those on the waiting list, especially the most vulnerable - many of whom have been waiting for years to be housed or re-housed.

Clearly the action which needs to be taken quickly does not relate to the points system but to the building of properties for sale and rental. On this there is little or no real action being taken.

We trust that the announcement of the new points system will not be used simply as a smoke screen for inaction in other areas.”
