A letter from Patricia Fergusson
Thank you fo your letter of November 5th regarding the breakdown of the lifts at your home in 65 Cedar Street.
I have forwarded your correspondence to Bailie Malik's office as she will be best placed to deal with your concerns. I had noted however, that you had said you were yet to hear from either myself or Bailie Malik with regards the issues you had raised with us during our roving surgery in Cedar Street. Bailie Malik has infact been in touch with Stephen McAvoy at Glasgow Housing Association to bring to his attention the issues you had raised. I believe that Bailie Malik is still awaiting a response from Mr. McAvoy and as soon as this is forthcoming; she will be back in touch with you.
In the meantime if you wish to contact Bailie Malik to discuss your concerns, she can be contacted at Glasgow City Chambers on (0141) 287 5883.

In other words the elected representative for this constituency in the Scottish Parliament has declaimed any responsibility for the state of social housing in her constituency. Apparently social housing is not under her ambit of responsibility, as long as it is issues affecting tenants that really matter to them. This is passing the buck.
