  • Frank Field book

    I heard an interview this morning on Radio Wales. Frank Field is publishing a book on NFH.

    Anyone got the details of the book, please?

    The only reference to a book by Frank Field is "Losing Out" -

    Perhaps my most frustrating experience in the service of my party was serving on the policy working group on housing. We had many good ideas, but we could not put it all together. A real problem was created by the initial success of the policy of the sale of council houses. I remember Frank Field's book, Losing Out, published in 1989, in which he pointed out that only the people who were in effect unsuccessful were remaining in council estates—which were therefore becoming much more undesirable places to live and much harder places from which to become employed and were much greater poverty traps in themselves. So the apparent success of a policy has left a very big problem behind it. This may be one of the problems from which to start. I suppose that even on the Front Bench one must be allowed, if one is not committing anyone to anything, to think aloud sometimes.

    Can't find anything about one he's writing at the moment. Perhaps contacting his Office may reveal something?

      I think Frank Field is in the process of writing a book and it will be about antisocial behaviour such as that exhibited by NFH.

      I'd be inclined to email his office to find out.

        Frank Field wrote an article in the Daily Mail today.

        His book is called 'Neighbours from Hell: The Politics of Behaviour', published by Politico's price ÂŁ8.99
