The European Times 新闻旨在报道重要的新闻,以提高欧洲各地公民的意识。

先生,——詹妮弗·布雷(Jennifer Bray)援引未具名消息来源称,对城市地区国有土地上的经济适用房开发提供补贴可能违反欧盟国家援助规则(“反对党的住房政策如何叠加?”,分析,14 月 XNUMX 日)。 这种误导性的论点被一些人用来指责欧盟这里缺乏社会保障房和经济适用房,或者关闭关于国家在社会保障房和经济适用房供应中的作用的对话,或者两者兼而有之。

                                                    <p class="LETTER">The European Commission has made it very clear that it is up to each member state to define its policy on services of a general economic interest (SGEI) into which social and affordable housing falls.</p>
                                                    <p class="LETTER">The only role the European Commission has is to ensure that the aid intended for social purposes is not misused to finance commercial activities. </p>
                                                    <p class="LETTER">In a recent report commissioned by the Irish Council on Social Housing, Prof Padraic Kenna of NUIG has pointed out that “the EU Treaties prohibit state aid which would distort competition, but some state aid is permitted to designated SGEIs. These are economic activities which deliver outcomes for the overall public good, that would not be supplied (or would be supplied under different conditions in terms of quality, safety, affordability, equal treatment or universal access) by the market, without public intervention. The explicit designation of an economic activity, with a public interest mission, as an SGEI, by a member state is recognised in EU law.” </p>
                                                    <p class="LETTER">The public interest mission for social and affordable housing in Ireland is set out in the 2009 Housing Act and in the Affordable Housing Bill 2020. Affordability is defined in the 2009 Act as representing 35 per cent of net income. It is a pity that the current Bill going through the Oireachtas sets affordability at 25 per cent of the market rent. </p>

                                                                                                                                                                                        <p class="LETTER">In a rental market that is clearly dysfunctional for those on moderate incomes a 25 per cent reduction in rent or, indeed, 35 per cent of net income, may be crippling. Nonetheless, linking affordability to income is critical. – Yours, etc,</p>
