Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Matt Western: The hon. Gentleman makes a valid and pertinent point. High deposits are very much part of the cause of homelessness in many areas, because people feel financially and socially excluded from the private rented sector.

Matt Western: I rise to speak to new clauses 1, 11 and 12, and very much in support of a customs union. I was surprised by the way the former Secretary of State, the right hon.

I witnessed something slightly...
