Right to rent is discriminatory – Diane Abbott responds

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the High Court ruling that the government’s right to rent scheme is discriminatory, said:

“The government has continually failed to listen to stark warnings about its hostile policies. This ruling has made it very clear that the Tories’ discriminatory scheme is not working and recklessly risks making people homeless. These are the inhumane consequences of Theresa May’s hostile environment. This must end.”
