Labour’s rent cap plan for private landlords doesn’t go far enough May 1st, 2014 admin Latest Uncategorized Shares Comments Labour’s rent cap plan for private landlords doesn’t go far enough Ed Miliband’s plan to cap private rents is welcome but does not go far enough, the Left Unity party says. Felicity Dowling, principal speaker and housing policy convenor for Left Unity, said: “Capping rent rises is a step in the right direction, but we need to go much further – sky-high private rents should be reduced by new legal controls. Rents should be capped at a truly affordable level. This is the policy that our recent conference voted for. “The only long-term solution to the problem is a major housebuilding programme, to provide public housing for all with affordable rents.” Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
