The existing allocation legislation is designed to ensure that priority for social housing is based fairly and squarely on housing need. Priority for social housing is not determined by a person's race, nationality or immigration status. Local authorities must ensure that their allocation policies and procedures do not discriminate, directly or indirectly, on grounds of race or ethnicity.
