Sinn Féin Housing spokesperson Eoin Ó Broin has stated that his party supports the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) proposals to tackle the housing crisis.

Speaking today after attending the launch of ICTU’s Charter for Housing Rights, Deputy Ó Broin said:

“At the conference today, hosted by ICTU, we heard from a number of different NGOs, stakeholders and politicians on what needs to be done to tackle the housing crisis.

“ICTU have outlined a five point plan for tackling the problem - all of which Sinn Féin supports.

“We need a minimum of 10,000 new social homes built annually, the right to housing needs to be enshrined in the Constitution, tenants need rent certainty & greater security of tenure, evictions that would result in homelessness should be outlawed and publicly owned land must provide affordable housing.

“We look forward to working with ICTU and the Unions and actively campaigning to secure these goals."
