Housing Secretary Michael Gove has suggested that the Bill is scheduled for its Second Reading later this autumn. Addressing Conservative conference delegates at a Centre for Policy Studies meeting, Gove dismissed rumours of opposition from some Tory backbenchers and reiterated the government’s commitment to the legislation.
The Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, Ben Beadle, was at the meeting and expressed his support on social media……
“The backbench concerns of rental reform are not the view of the government, says @michaelgove, with the Second Reading scheduled for the autumn. Delighted to hear him speak so strongly on the need for responsible #landlords and @NRLAssociation campaigning.”
