Jack Dromey MP, Labour's Shadow Housing Minister, commenting on Shelter’s new report on letting agents, said:
 
"This shocking research shows why Labour was right to call for action to tackle unscrupulous lettings agents who rip-off tenants by charging them fees they didn’t know they would face, forcing many of them into debt.”
 
"Earlier this year, the Government was forced by Labour into an eleventh hour U-turn to back action for mandatory redress for tenants and landlords. But this report demonstrates why that was a first step and not the last word.”
 
“Labour has called for action to force letting agents to be transparent over their fees and we’re assessing the level and extent of activities that can be charged for.”
