Corbyn reacts to ‘Rogue landlords’

 Following a report in the Guardian on Sunday which claimed that more than half a million people aged under 35 are estimated to be living in rented properties so hazardous they are likely to lead to residents needing medical attention, Corbyn said that the government is allowing people to live in hazardous conditions.

He stated  “I am very committed to housing and dealing with homelessness. I think it’s a moral litmus test for the country: do we just put up with so many rough sleepers or do we do something about it.

“What we [a Labour government] would do is bring in a more regulated private rented system with particular emphasis on longer tenancies.”
