Dublin City Council pass motion demanding rise in spending on housing

A motion calling for the Government to declare the housing crisis a national emergency was passed at a special meeting of Dublin City Council last night.

The motion is also demanding capital spending on housing increase to at least €2.3bn in the upcoming budget.

Last night's extra-ordinary meeting saw it passed by 28 votes to two.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin has requested that a cross-party delegation now make a presentation to the Dail Committee on Housing.
