My Lords, we on these Benches welcome the increase in new house-building proposed in the Housing and Regeneration Bill. We hope and believe that this proposed new housing will begin to address the shortage that has been allowed to build up—some believe deliberately—over the past 20 years, resulting in average house price inflation in excess of 20 per cent a year over that 20-year period....
asked Her Majesty's Government: What further steps can be taken to improve the availability of local accommodation in the Isles of Scilly so as to improve the recruitment and retention of teachers and other key workers.
My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. There are plans to build, but the school has lost good teachers because of the difficulty about housing. There has been a failure to recruit as a result of this problem. In other words, the problem is now.
