Fine Gael opposed our proposal to introduce tax relief for renters and, along with Fianna Fáil, has continuously voted down the Focus Ireland amendment that would stop landlords evicting families into homelessness. Shame on both parties.

We need real and meaningful action to tackle the housing crisis. We need a change in direction and we need that change fast. Now that the Government has the backing of Fianna Fáil for at least another year what are Fine Gael's plans to tackle the housing crisis? What is the plan to deal with the spiralling rents and the fact that many homeless families will now spend their third Christmas in a hotel?
