Jack Dromey MP, Labour's Shadow Housing Minister, responding to Shelter’s “Growing up renting” report on families in the private rented sector that finds that the volatile rental market is damaging childhoods, said:
“Living a life of insecurity harms family life and blights the childhood of young people uprooted time and again from their schools and friends. Families must be able to plan where they send their kids to school and how they manage their household budgets.
“That’s why Labour has outlined its proposals to reform the private rented sector so it works for Britain’s families. With longer term tenancies and predictable rents, the private rented sector can offer the affordable and stable homes that families need.
“The nine million renters in this country deserve a fair deal. Labour’s One Nation housing policy offers stability for families, certainty for landlords and strengthened communities.”
