ALONE respond to Residential Landlord Association’s call for removal of ban on bedsits
Dublin, 3rd March 2015 ALONE have responded to Fintan McNamara of the Residential Landlord Assocation’s comments that the Government should “remove the draconian blanket ban on bedsits”.
Sean Moynihan, Chief Executive Officer of ALONE commented, “ALONE strongly disagrees with the RLA’s call for the amendment of the ban on bedsits, ALONE has been campaigning against this type of accommodation for over 30 years and we don’t want to go back. We would be concerned that it would be the most vulnerable who would be forced into this type of accommodation, often located in old buildings with sub-standard condititions. ALONE believes the government needs to look at long term strategic solutions to providing quality housing instead of short term reactions to the current crisis”.
