nearly 50,000 people were involved in a national squat in 1946.
In 1947 the Town and Country Planning Act facilitated building new houses
in unprecedented quantities.
could the two things be connected?
It attempted to, to prevent exploitation of this need by landowners jacking
up land prices.
( in the long term this was circumvented.) correctly identifying land
monopoly as one cause of the crisis.
what are the lessons for to-day?-
people in housing stress should combine
the government will only listen to corporate bidies , not individuals.
good planning is essentially facilitating not restrictive.
organising a national squat is indicated.
