Today, I asked the Housing Minister for an update on the number of revenge evictions taking place in the UK, following the change in law last year.

Rather than dignify my question with a substantive response, he provided a pre-scripted comment with his views on Labour’s housing policies.

Given the enormous anxieties and hardship associated with revenge evictions, I would have hoped for a more dignified response. Regardless, I will continue to press the Government on this matter until we get assurances that landlords are complying with new regulations to protect tenants.
