Read carefully; You Say

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.
