CIH Scotland urges new UK Parliament to work cross party to address implementation issues with welfare reform
CIH Scotland executive director Annie Mauger has commented on the outcome of yesterday's General Election."Whatever the new government looks like, we at CIH Scotland, along with our membership of housing professionals throughout Scotland, are ready to work with that government constructively to address the issues currently facing the housing sector.
“For Scotland, welfare reform is a key area of reserved policy where we hope politicians can work on a cross party basis to resolve significant issues of implementation which CIH Scotland members, working on the frontline of housing delivery, are currently having to deal with.”
