On Tuesday, a leaked report revealed the Housing Commission’s criticism that the Government has not resolved the “fundamentally systemic” failures in the State’s housing system.

The report from housing experts also suggests there is an underlying housing deficit in Ireland of up to 256,000 homes.

Who makes up the Housing Commission and should all the blame for the State’s housing policy be laid at the door of the Coalition Government?

Irish Times political correspondent Jack Horgan-Jones joins the podcast to discuss the most significant elements of Tuesday’s leak, while architect Mel Reynolds examines the Government’s failure to control the current housing model.
