Few aspects of racial inequality have over the years attracted as much attention as housing. From the earliest stages of the arrival of black migrants in post-war Britain the disadvantages they suffered in the housing market were a major issue of concern in some localities. Additionally, during this time anti-immigrant groups found that housing was an emotive issue around which they could attempt to organise political support. One way or another, therefore, it can be said that it is on the question of housing that many local political debates about racial issues have focused.
