Sir – Both universities in Oxford are near to meeting their targets of no more than 3,000 of their students living in family houses but your headline story (July 26) does not mention the key point — that the number of vacated family houses that are actually occupied by families subsequently is unknown and the complacent Labour administration in Oxford neither knows, nor cares, about finding out.
It is possible to use council tax records to check — and the number is important, since the whole point in the 3,000 limit is to increase family housing numbers and if that is not happening then a rethink is needed.
