Edinburgh Tenants Federation convenor gives evidence to Scottish Parliament committee
Edinburgh Tenants Federation’s (ETF’s) convenor Betty Stone has given evidence to the Scottish Parliament’s Social Justice and Social Security Committee at the Scottish Parliament.
The evidence session looked at low income and debt problems with representatives from other organisations such as Shelter Scotland, Child Poverty Action Group in Scotland and Aberlour also present.
ETF’s convenor Betty Stone said: “I was more than happy to speak at the Social Justice and Social Security Committee meeting. I have seen first-hand the impact that debt has had on tenants across Edinburgh, particularly over the last few years due to the pandemic and the increased cost of living.
“By highlighting these issues, I hope that more support will be made available to tenants who are struggling, not just in Edinburgh but across the whole country. I am proud of the work that ETF has done to help tenants in Edinburgh, who are struggling with debt problems and we will continue to work with the City of Edinburgh Council and the Scottish Parliament to address these issues.”
