The Duckworths have to vacate their old house in Inkerman Street. Mrs Lawson tracks Eddie down. Ken's boss, Peter Bromley, tells him that the Council aren't happy with his leaking and asks him to sign a new contract stating he'll never pass on Council information again. He refuses to sign, saying his job is to serve the community, not to hide things from them. Mrs Lawson accuses Eddie of stealing the carpet. She demands to have the carpet back. Ken is asked to resign because he has broken his contract. He refuses to resign and is sacked. Eddie finds Hilda's old carpet on the tip but she refuses to have it back; she's going to have new. Ken takes voluntary redundancy. Deirdre is annoyed that he wouldn't sign the contract as he's put their lives on the line. Jack discovers the house contract will take another week and they'll be homeless. Ivy agrees to take the Duckworths in.
