Conduct Of The Hon. Member For Totnes

EDM number 502 in 2007-08, proposed by Ken Purchase on 06/12/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Crime, Housing, Housing supply and Social rented housing.

That this House condemns the comments in the South Devon Herald Express newspaper on 19th November 2007 attributed to the hon. Member for Totnes criticising the idea of allowing local authorities to build new council housing on the grounds that `No one felt any obligation to anybody on these public housing estates, they were hotbeds of crime. It's a very serious, retrograde step'; and calls on the hon. Member either to issue a correction if his comments were wrongly reported or to apologise to the millions of law abiding citizens of this country who have lived, or currently live, on public housing estates, including those in the hon. Member for Totnes' constituency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
