We bring you a taster of our recent appearance on Connected Local Gov TV, in which LGiU researcher Andrew Walker, Southwark Cabinet Member for Housing Stephanie Cryan, and Dawn Eckersley from the East London Housing Partnership discuss the drivers behind the housing crisis.

Followed by run-down of recent LGiU member-only housing policy briefings such as international lessons for tackling homelessness and Housing First schemes, as well as findings of the Work and Pensions Committee review of Universal Credit.

Plus our regular roundup of the highlights from LGiU Daily News, including stories about Yorkshire devo, modern slavery, green transport infrastructure, LOBOs, private tower block cladding, as well as some more lighthearted stories about toad roads and Del Boy statues in And Finally.

Hosted by Ingrid Koehler and Jennifer Glover. Tweet us @LGiU
