Jack - I never said the report had anything to do with under-occupancy. I agree it emphasises the risk benefit claimants pose to private landlords - I said as much in a previous post.
The question is, if there is less housing available privately, and no new social housing, where will these people live?
This raises the issue of under-occupancy. Tenants living in bigger social rented homes than they need are in effect forcing people onto the street. It would save billions by addressing this problem - rather than the phony issue of private landlords 'snubbing' claimants.
