Should families be taken off the housing list if they refuse an offer of social housing?

For Tueday afternoon, Mike Hogan (in for Niall) spoke about social housing. Families who turn down two offers of social housing will not receive another offer for five years under a change in policy set to be introduced by the Government. Currently, if two offers of social housing are turned down the applicant is suspended from the waiting list for a year and will not be offered social housing for that period. One refusal is allowed. Do you think people should be penalised for turning down two offers of social housing? Or do you think it is wrong to make people wait another 5 years for a house because they deemed the two offered not suitable?
