John Healey responds to Government’s new national database of rogue landlords
John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the Government’s new national database of rogue landlords, said:
“After eight years of failure on housing, this is yet another half measure that will do little to help private renters.
“Since 2010, Conservative Ministers have blocked Labour’s proposals to crack down on rogue landlords and stopped Labour councils from bringing in licensing schemes to drive up standards.
“The next Labour Government will help renters with new consumer rights, longer tenancies and controls on their rents. While the Conservatives cling on to power in Westminster the best hope for millions of renters is to elect Labour councillors and create more Labour councils on 3rd May.”
