On Wednesday 15th June a meeting,involving the government, Southern Cross and seven large landlords will take place to discuss the company’s plans to slash rents by 30%. The landlords are also expected to demand that the Inland Revenue writes off some of the £20m owed or at least provides some breathing space to the company.
