Shadow minister attacks coalition social housing reforms

Minister Grant Shapps has said people will not be "chased out of their homes" by reforms to social housing in England which could end council homes for life.

Ministers want to allow councils and housing associations to grant fixed term tenancies lasting at least two years for new tenants.

But the proposals have been attacked by Labour. Speaking to the BBC, Shadow Communities and Local Government Minister Jack Dromey warned of a bureaucratic nightmare.
