Council Housing: Immigrants

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 24 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment he has made of the effects of the European Court of Justice ruling in Cases C-310/08 and C-480/08, London borough of Harrow v. Nimco Hassan Ibrahim and Maria Teixeira v. London borough of Lambeth, on the requirements of local authorities to provide council housing to migrant workers. (323157)

We are considering the implications of judgment of the European Court of Justice for the allocation of social housing.

However, because of the very specific circumstances of the two cases, we do not expect that the judgment will have a significant impact on the amount of council housing provided to migrant workers.
