This chapter draws on housing studies to examine how the housing sector's contribution to tackling squalor has changed since 1948, arguing that both a longer historical and a more geopolitical nuanced view is needed in examining developments in this sector. It contrasts the experience of Scotland and England, and the competing political discourses, in the development of housing policy, discussing how contemporary policies have been framed by the Beveridge settlement.

Keywords:   housing studies, squalor, 1948, geopolitical view, Scotland and England, Beveridge settlement
