Lambeth was forced to put up rents after Lib Dem councillors failed to claim an £11m grant while they were in charge at the town hall. This shocking Lib Dem blunder forced rents up to balance the books.
Mark said: 'I’m taking this issue right to the top. I’m going to see the Minister for Housing to explain why the Government must help'. He continued: 'Labour wants to limit the rent rise, but Lib Dems say the increase is not enough! Why should local people suffer just because Lib Dem councillors were so incompetent while they were in charge?”
