If this Island government is serious about tackling the appalling housing conditions endured by so many it will have to show more resolution than this. As always, no Press Releases were sent out to bloggers such as I and it seems like just another limp PR aspect of the housing reforms package currently being touted.
However for the 98,000 who did not attend and especially the 10,000 "non-quals" working adults (and their children) who live in the worst conditions of all Jersey residents - here is a video-recording of the 25 minutes presentation from Val Cameron and Steve Petrie (?) for the Health Department.
There was no mention of portacabins before I left the meeting but I suspect that these will still be with us for many more years to come - in spite of election promises etc from our most senior States members! (see previous posting on this blog).
PUBLIC HEALTH and SAFETY (DWELLINGS) (JERSEY) LAW 201- is now a Draft Law only but if ever approved and implemented could have a substantial effect.
Of course, it is unlikley to attract the xenophobic enthusiasm currently being shown by so many States' Members and the general public to discover and expose "immigrants" and "white van man" under the related Housing and and ID card Laws soon to be implemented.
