Get your organisation to bulk order printed copies to distribute to tenants reps, councillors and trade unionists in your area. Many people don't have internet access or still find it easier to read something of this length if they can hold it in their hands. Note: the electronic versions don't have all the inserts, references and quotes reproduced
