24 June 1969
Today’s Guild Gazette publishes on its front page a letter from Mrs M Gallimore, secretary of ATACC, the Amalgamated Tenants’ Association Co-ordinating Committee, to which the Abercrombey Tenants’ Association is affiliated. The letter reads:
TV and radio coverage of Princess Alexandra’s visit to Liverpool seemed to suggest that because students of the university were involved, trouble was expected. The Amalgamated Tenants’ Association Co-ordinating Committee think the students of the university have proved they are responsible persons by supporting such a worthwhile cause as protesting against slum housing conditions. The members of this committee know how much the students have done for the people of Abercrombey Ward and we congratulate them. If all students protested about such things, England would be a better place.
