The Guardian's housing correspondent (sect 2, p21) calls on new Labour leader Tony Blair to dump shadow housing minister John Battle for committing the sin of 'reading' his response to Sir George Young's homeless changes in the Commons.

'Perhaps the new man at the Labour helm will now also reshuffle so that the wider housing debate can be given the seriousness, the coherence and sense of purpose that it so badly needs,' Michael Simmons writes.

The article focuses on new housing minister David Curry and concludes that there will be no change in policy.
