Commenting on the Scottish Housing Regulator’s inquiry into Glasgow City Council’s homelessness services, Scottish Greens Co-Leader and Glasgow MSP Patrick Harvie said:
“For far too long, Glasgow City Council has been telling itself that breaking the law a bit less than it did in the previous year is somehow a measure of success. It’s not - it’s a record of shame. No one should ever be denied their right to housing and it's vital the Council acts now to make sure one legacy of the pandemic is a permanent end to rough sleeping and unsuitable temporary accommodation.
“The Council and Scottish Government must also work together to deliver the ambitions of the Everyone Home campaign, including backing the Scottish Greens’ calls for a meaningful eviction ban to stop people falling into homelessness because of the pandemic.”
