The Government’s Housing, Communities and Local Government (HCLG) Committee has launched an inquiry into the Impact of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) on homelessness and the private rented sector. It will consider both the immediate and long-term impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the homeless, rough sleepers and those in the private rented sector.
The Committee expects to hold an evidence session in early May 2020 onwards to hear directly from stakeholders and Government about what is being done and what further support is needed. It is welcoming submissions from anyone with answers to the questions in its ‘call for evidence’. Evidence can be submitted until Friday 1 May 2020.
