Eddie supports proposed habitable homes law

I spoke in favour of the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill - brought by an Opposition MP and backed by the Government. MP's can, and do, work cross-party - with many Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems backing my bill to improve tenant safety around carbon monoxide poisoning as well.

But turning to the Bill, I know that many landlords often do their best to maintain a property in a fit and proper state, but sometimes that is not the case, and when it is not the case, we need legislation that protects tenants. Tenant safety is a very high priority for this Government, as we have seen in the work carried out since Grenfell, and we will continue to deliver on that.
