Jack Dromey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Minister, said in response to Grant Shapps' article in Politics Home on HomeSwap:

"Even for Grant Shapps this is an absurd level of hyperbole about a scheme that will do little in a time where there aren't enough homes or jobs. And the new era he has ushered in for social tenants is one of insecurity and ever soaring rents as he attacks their rights by ending secure tenancies and linking rents to market prices that are unaffordable for many. The Tory-led Government is out of touch with those living in, or in need of social housing, and Grant Shapps is no champion of the tenant."
