Any other arrangement however suggests that anyone asked to leave a private tenancy will automatically be offered council accommodation. I entirely agree that more such should be available, but we are where we are.

Accepted, but we need more joined up thinking: perhaps a scheme to help all the parties together: everybody is ultimately looking for much the same outcome.
Thatcher made a shameful decision to sell off council house stock. Councils simply do not have enough available.

The shameful decision was to not allow the revenue to be re-invested in housing.

Yes, obviously, but wouldn't everybody be better off if they didn't have to go to court to get that extra month?



Absolutely. They can find another private let before the the eviction notice expires.
