Yesterday, a Westminster Hall debate took place, led by Liberal Democrat MP Stephen Lloyd. He aimed to highlight the effect of universal credit on the private rented sector. Simply, landlords aren’t loving the prospect of not getting their rent money, so they are simply saying they won’t rent to anyone on benefits.

This is going to create a massive problem as people find they can’t find somewhere to live.

Here’s Christine Jardine speaking in the debate:

The effect of universal credit on the private rented sector

Today I spoke about the effect of universal credit on the private rented sector. Since elected I have urged the Government, in numerous debates, to stop the roll out and fix the problems. And I won't apologise for continuing to do so.
