Housing- Rent Control
10 Jun 2015Ms Diane Abbott (Hackney North and Stoke Newington) (Lab):
Does my hon. Friend not accept that the crippling level of rents in London is a cause of increasing concern to young Londoners and their families? In every poll and interaction with them, Londoners are demanding a level of rent stabilisation and—yes—workable rent control.
Emma Reynolds (Lab):
I am sympathetic to the concerns that my hon. Friend expresses, but we take different positions on this issue. I am not in favour of the state setting rent levels.
