In an early day motion tabled today Labour MPs deplored claims by the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Michael Portillo, about Birmingham City Council's management of its housing stock.

Mr Portillo made claims on Radio Four's Today programme on Monday. The motion read: 'that last year the council collected 96.11% of rents for its 106,000 units and has reduced rent arrears by more than £4m.' The council has also brought 10 cases of illegal occupation of dwellings before the courts, it said.
