Government budget will always have an impact on social housing

Leader says they'll be keeping an eye on it 

Douglas Council says it will be keeping an eye on the government's budget as it 'will impact' the authority.

It says it is 'influenced' by what Treasury does 'especially' in terms of housing stock.
