MEP Kim van Sparrentak (Dutch Greens) asks commissioner-designate Nicolas Schmit about his commitment on social housing. Especially in the Netherlands starters, lower and middle income families cannot find housing on the private market, but they are not allowed social housing because of EU rules. This is de EU actively hindering a successful social policy, argues Van Sparrentak.
