31 - Housing has a new Minister with David Bookbinder and Jane Wood
Following the appointment of a new minister for housing, we assembled a panel of former guests for a snap reaction.
David Bookbinder, the director of the Glasgow and West of Scotland Forum of Housing Associations and Jane Wood, the Homes for Scotland chief executive, join Kieran Findlay and Jimmy Black to tell us what they think should be on Paul McLennan’s agenda and gives us their thoughts on whether spreading responsibilities such as tenants’ rights, net zero buildings and community wealth building across several ministerial briefs could work.
Jimmy Black has written a blog to accompany the episode, here:
Kieran Findlay is the editor of Scottish Housing News. Jimmy Black is a former Dundee housing convener and housing justice campaigner.
