HAPPI 4, a report on Housing for Older People in Rural Areas, was launched at an event in the House of Lords yesterday which Richard attended as one of those who gave attendance. The report was produced by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Care for Older People which is co-chaired by Lord Best and by Peter Aldous MP. The main speech was given by Lord Gardiner (pictured), the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Rural Affairs who emphasised the huge importance of initiatives to improve the lives of the very high number of older people living in the countryside, before he and Lord Best dashed off for the Brexit vote. Some interesting info-graphics emerging from the report are shown here.
