Budget 2019 housing proposals

Labour Party Housing spokesperson Jan O'Sullivan

LABOUR Housing spokesperson, Jan O’Sullivan, has said this week’s housing proposals as part of Budget 2019, show no imagination on behalf of the Government parties Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael and will do nothing to ease the housing crisis when it comes to rent. “The budgetary measures show that Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil have little regard for renters. Fianna Fáil’s so-called affordable housing scheme is a direct subsidy to developers. It’s a classic from the Fianna Fáil playbook providing a top up for big builders but doing little to deliver a real affordable scheme,” said Deputy O’Sullivan.
