A motion calling for the government to declare the housing crisis a national emergency was passed at a special meeting of Dublin City Council last night.

The motion is also demanding capital spending on housing increase to at least €2.3 billion in the upcoming budget.

Last night's extra ordinary meeting saw it passed by 28 votes to 2.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin has requested that a cross party delegation now make a presentation to the Dail Committee on Housing.

It comes as Sinn Féin is bringing a no confidence motion against the Housing Minister today.
