Thangam Debbonaire – 2020 Comments on Housing Costs

The comments made by Thangam Debbonaire, the Shadow Housing Secretary, on 13 August 2020.

Everyone deserves a secure, affordable home, whether they own or rent. The UK is in recession for the first time in 11 years, and more people are likely to struggle with the cost of housing.

So far, the Government has prioritised tax breaks to landlords and second homeowners. It needs a plan to tackle the jobs, homelessness and housing crises.
