The Guardian – Labour report calls for rent caps to tackle housing crisis 

The Guardian leads on a Labour-commissioned report that calls for rent caps to tackle the growing housing crisis.

Rent rises should be capped for millions of people struggling to afford soaring rates, according to the report.

The report will put pressure on Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, to do more for renters after he promised to tackle England’s housing crisis if elected as prime minister, in part with a massive programme of housebuilding for social rent.
