The issue of poor quality accommodation finally gets mentioned!

As this question from Monday of this week makes clear, some politicians in the House of Commons do actually know what the challenges of C-19 will have on many people in our nation. Sadly the response from Matthew Hancock was rather inadequate. He initially stated “Yes, of course, we are incredibly concerned about that, and it is reflected in the guidance that we have specifically put out.” which on the surface appears to be reasonable. However rather than come up with a meaningful response he went on to say “It is one of the many reasons why we encourage people to get outside, even if they are in household isolation, so long as they do not come into contact with others. Of course, I understand the consequences of the advice that we have given for the hon. Lady’s constituents.” Perhaps Meg or one of her colleagues can have another go!
