Security of Tenure

So, Simon Hughes - the Lib Dem deputy leader - is trying to get the Lib Dem conference to debate the issue of security of tenure for social housing tenants. He has tabled a motion which defends security and if passed, would certainly pose an awkward dilemma for Clegg and the coalition, particularly since Cameron made his statement on the subject recently. Whilst the issue is not up there in terms of press coverage like the impending spending cuts, it does reflect the problems that are inherent in this coalition government, and does lead us to think about what housing policy will be like in 5 years time....anyone?
