Glad to see Ealing Council is listening

At a special Council meeting this week I asked a question to the Councillor responsible for Housing relating to evicting those guilty of rioting or looting:

Could the portfolio holder please outline whether he is in favour of using the powers we have, or altering future housing rental contracts, so that those convicted of crimes relating to the riots and associated looting can be removed from Council housing?

The answer I got to the oral question was sort of luke warm but in the days since it appears the Council have taken a strong line. This may mean that those who are guilty of these crimes might be evicted allowing some of the many on the waiting lists for housing to move up the queue and hopefully some can get housing they have patiently waited for.
