Council homes: changes to funding could help tenants

The Welsh and UK governments are discussing changes to the way money is spent on improving council housing.

Currently councils hand over millions of pounds of rent payment to the Treasury which then decides where it should be spent.

Changes allowing local councils more of a say could benefit tenants who are waiting for improvement work to be carried out, say supporters.
