The Salvation Army has put a major road block in the Government’s plans to sell-off of state houses.

In a key policy announcement at the start of the year Prime Minister John Key announced a plan to sell up to 8000 state houses to community groups, with the Salvation Army proposed as a group to take up the offer.

But Major Campbell Roberts believes that won’t be happening, saying it doesn’t have the resources required for such a huge undertaking.

“When we looked at all the complexities which were involved we felt that as one single organisation, one community organisation, we couldn’t do it,” he says.
