Government is gearing up for a drastic increase in evictions – Thangam Debbonaire

Thangam Debbonaire, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the Government’s announcement of support for renters, said:

“The announcement shows that the Government is gearing up for a drastic increase in evictions this winter, just as coronavirus cases are rising. They are threatening public health and putting lives at risk.

“They have failed to prepare for this crisis, and must urgently change course. The ban on evictions cannot end until they have a credible plan to keep their promise that no renter should lose their home because of Coronavirus.”
