REGARDING the letter from WA Tully in Kirkby (ECHO Letters November 12), I wish critics would read the said letters carefully.
I did not say people alone in three-bedroom houses live rent free. I know many are pensioners and often lonely. I know because I worked for Age Concern.
I would like one bedroom bungalows built in their area where they can be together and give families the houses meant for them; you owe it to children.
I lived on the Boot Estate for 43 years and I was interested in your remark that the Housing Act enforced councils to sell off houses to pay their debts, so where did they get the money to buy them back a few years later for more than they sold them for? Many of my neighbours were delighted and went back to renting them. No wonder councils can't build houses.
M. Dunford, Frodsham
