I don't agree with the statement that govenment should spend more money on building new houses. I think government should spend more money on preserving the historical and traditional house. Three reasons are explained below.
Firstly, there are already many newly-built houses and a large number of houses which are being built now. So the government is in no hurry to build too many new houses. And building new houses has many disadvantages on the environment. It may produce much construction waste which will do damage to the appearance of the city if not being dealt with properly. Also, it may make noise which will disturb people who are sleeping or working in the neighborhood.
Secondly, there is urgent need to preserve the historical and traditional house. Because during the development of the city, many old houses are being removed gradually. Some of these houses are very valuable. They not only contain valuable treasures, but also carry the history of the development of our city, country, and the society. If they're just replaced by new houses carelessly, people will regret in the future.
What's more, we can make use of those historical and traditional houses. We can repair part of these houses and open them to the society. I strongly believe they'll be good places for citizens to acquire more knowledge and learn our history better. Some of these houses can also cost money for visiting, and the income can not only be used to manage the houses, but also be used to boost the education. So it can also promote the development of the economy.
In all, I hope our government can make great efforts to preserve the historical and traditional houses. I believe our city and our country will have a better future.
