“The danger of ‘doing nothing about it’ is revealed by the growth of Nazi power in pre-war Germany. We can and must all do something, and the burden falls upon our particular shoulders is that of helping to ease the housing situation. The answer, ‘but our hands are full with our own housing problems’ is not acceptable. The housing of the immigrants is our problem, because anti-racialism is a germ that festering inward, ultimately kills the social system that harbours it.”

Meg A Merrylees MBE, National Federation of Housing Associations Secretary, writing in The Times Weekly Review on 4 December 1958
