Q: As she has stated that her Government is determined to maintain a world-class social environment and that quality housing is a social investment that "underpin[s] our way of life, and the values that are important to us", does she agree with the Salvation Army that her Government's "big housing experiment ... has been ... disastrous"; if not, why not?

Question 9.
