The comments made by Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, on 8 June 2022.
In 2022 it is disgraceful that anyone should live in damp, cold and unsafe homes, waiting months for repairs and being routinely ignored by their landlord. These new laws will end this injustice and ensure the regulator has strong new powers to take on rogue social landlords.
We are driving up the standards of social housing and giving residents a voice to make sure they get the homes they deserve. That is levelling up in action.
