Affordable housing budget

May 25th 2009
Ross Finnie, MSP, the Scottish Liberal Democrat spokesperson on health, challenged Alex Salmond over affordable housing investment in Scotland's two biggest cities during First Minister's Questions, following talks with the SFHA. Mr Finnie questioned the First Minister on why Edinburgh and Glasgow have not benefited from any extra investment in affordable housing for the last two years - and how they will meet homelessness targets. The SFHA has held talks with Mr Finnie and the Liberal Democrats along with the rest of the parties in Holyrood this week on securing an extra £30 million in the Scottish budget for affordable housing. The budget cleared its first hurdle this week, passing to committee stage, where it can be amended, before heading for a final vote in Parliament on 28 January.
