Lab12: Labour Housing Group/SERA fringe

I'm trying to catch up and post on Conference fringe events I attended. I'm using my twitter feed to remind me what went on. This event is actually from Monday evening at the Labour Housing Group/SERA fringe "Tackling Rents and Bills" in the Friends meeting house.

Both are affiliated socialist societies of the Party.  This was pretty much packed out and keynote speaker was of course Housing Shadow Minister, Jack Dromey MP.  I did try writing notes on what contributors said rather than "twitter" but have since lost them somehow (teach me not to rely on dead trees).

Jack spoke about a House building programme being the means to help take us out of recession; high land values to be tackled and there will be a Housing summit in the Autumn for the 20 top performing Labour Councils and their partners.  I'm sure that Newham will get an invite.
