The Conservative minority government has pledged to bring forward a housing bill in the next parliamentary session.
Details of the Bill were included within the Queen’s Speech, announced this morning.
“Proposals will be brought forward to ban unfair tenant fees,promote fairness and transparency in the housing market, and help ensure more homes are built,” the Queen said.
A Bill to continue the progress of the High Speed Two rail line will also be brought forward.
The session will last two years in an attempt to give priority to the necessary Brexit legislation which must be passed.
