Media Release: Shelter Scotland responds to Scottish Government announcement on Right to Buy

GRAEME Brown, director of Shelter Scotland, the housing and homelessness charity, says:

“Shelter Scotland welcomes the fact that the Right-to-Buy for new council house and housing association tenants has been scrapped.

“The new law will also prevent the sell-off of all new social homes – an overdue provision which helps secure Scotland’s housing stock for the future.”
