This Government is committed to easing cost of living pressures and increasing security and stability for tenants.

I was very pleased to announce last week that we are bringing forward legislation to scrap Section 21 evictions.

This will prevevent tenants from being unfairly evicted and empower them to challenge unreasonable rent rises - as well as saving money on the costs of frequent house moves.
