Re: Afghan Refugees- Already they have complaints
Turkey have indeed stepped up, Pakistan have a lot of Afghanis refugees, it been estimated between 1 and 1.5 million. Social housing has been in decline since Mrs Thatcher let people buy council properties, legislation came in around applying for monies to build new properties but local authorities couldn't apply so most council housing became arms length companies or in some cases housing associations. The amount of grants in recent years have reduced and so is the amount allocated per residence. It's meant people paying inflated prices for privately rented property, housing is less secure and this contributes greatly to homelessness the sad thing is its going to get worse .
