Motion text

That this House believes that houses in multiple occupation provide an important source of housing for many vulnerable groups of people; notes that many of these properties are in poor condition, with up to 20 per cent. falling below the legal standard of fitness for human habitation; supports proposals to introduce a licensing scheme to improve conditions and increase value for money which would benefit tenants and responsible landlords alike; and hopes the Government will include legislation to implement these proposals in the next Queen's Speech.
