Commenting on Green MSPs amendments to the Housing Bill on reforming council tenants' right to buy, Kirsten Robb said, "I welcome Patrick Harvie's amendments. Lanarkshire Greens have been campaigning for years for stronger action to address EK's long waiting lists. Yet local politicians have been extremely slow to act and have avoided making EK 'a pressurised housing area', which it most certainly is. If supported by other Parties, Patrick's amendments will protect more social housing in East Kilbride."
