Chief Human Rights Commissioner Paul Hunt said for generations governments have promised to create the conditions to enable everyone to live in a decent home, but that has not happened.

We’ve signed up to the Declaration of Human Rights (1) but there seems to be very little connection between the Declaration of Human Rights and how our other policies connect together, so the co-ordination and cohesion of our policies is not there.

The Government needs to show the same political will to tackle the crisis that previous governments showed after World War II.
