Mr HIBBINS: This week is Homelessness Week, and a wealthy society like ours should not have people without safe, secure places to call home.

Yes, we need to build more homes for people in need.


Yes, we need to end unfair tax breaks that lock people out of home ownership.

Yes, we need to give renters a better deal, and yes, we need to end homelessness once and for all.

If we could afford to put people up during the lockdown last year, we can afford to do it permanently.

No-one should be without a roof over their head.
