What government can do is make a concerted effort to lower housing costs so that jobs become tenable. It's no good pricing many jobs out of the market by huge living costs then expecting temporary workers from overseas to do them. That way lies madness. Benefits to support wages too low to allow people to afford a roof over their head helps no-one in the long term. Mass building of real council houses will help the situation. Use the QE interest money to get the ball rolling, rule out housing associations and make sure they're never sold.
