MPs inquiry finds ‘homes unfit for humans’ following ITV News investigation

An inquiry by MPs triggered by an ITV News investigation has found the deterioration of social housing has left some unfit for human habitation, as landlords are told to significantly “up their game.”

In a scathing report, the Levelling Up, Housing and Communities committee found “it is undeniable that tenants… face poor treatment from providers who discriminate and stigmatise people because they are social housing tenants.”

Chair of the Committee Clive Betts thanked ITV News for its investigation into the social housing sector, which he said had forced MPs to launch their own inquiry.
