Affordable and Safe Housing for All — 18 May 2021 at 18:49

“but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech fails to prevent the potentially ruinous costs of remediation works to make buildings safe being passed on to leaseholders and tenants; and call on the Government to set a deadline of June 2022 to make all homes safe.”
“no renter who has lost income due to coronavirus will be forced out of their home”,
“This will ensure residents in both the private and social sector can stay in their homes and have enough time to find alternative accommodation”.
“Measures will be brought forward to ensure that children have the best start in life, prioritising their early years.”
“leave local government with the political liability on planning whilst depriving them…of the powers to manage it effectively.”
“The purpose of life is a life of purpose”,
“was ‘minutes’ away from being another Grenfell Tower.”
“We have a single room with a door, a kitchen and a toilet. My 2 girls share a single bed and I share the other with my 3-year-old son. I work with covid patients and living in a single room with my kids does not allow me to isolate if and when I need to”.
“Housing is the first of the social services. It is also one of the keys to increased productivity. Work, family life, health and education are all undermined by overcrowded homes. Therefore a Conservative and Unionist Government will give housing a priority second only to national defence.”
“Conservatives have committed to building a property-owning democracy for generations”.
“the 2020s must be the decisive decade of progress and action on climate change”
“renovating and decarbonising the UK’s…homes.”
“We will also continue to develop reform of social housing regulations and look to legislate as soon as practicable.”
“A home is where the heart is”
“This hardship is having a huge impact on my mental health. I am unable to sleep and am suffering badly. I am struggling to work due to this stress.”
“would not have been possible without Help to Buy.”
