Minister Blok: temporary leases for starters
The Dutch Minister for Housing, Stef Blok (VVD) has proposed a bill to the ministers council on Friday in which he wants there to be a temporary leasing scheme for starter families. Sources around the coalition confirm that after the Telegraaf announced the story in Friday morning. The temporary leases are catered to starters, young people and big families, and are hoped to be able to improve the streaming process and shorten waiting lists. It is unclear if the bill will indeed be handled on Friday. Prime Minister Mark Rutte has in the past often pushed bills a week forward if they have leaked to the press, het Parool reports.
