RAS tenants are being discriminated against by being excluded from social housing lists.

Cllr Barbara Anne Murphy successfully brought a motion calling for the local authority to call on the Minister for Housing, Planning, Community & Local Government to end this discrimination. Cllr Murphy said tenants are now in real danger of being made homeless. She said: 'If a tenant has no lease they don't know where they are going to live. RAS may have been acceptable in the depths of the recession but it is totally unacceptable to still have such a two-tier housing system.'
