Sinn Féin council group leader Liam Mackle has said the announcement of a rent freeze for people living in Housing Executive homes is good news for ordinary people and working families.
Speaking after Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey made the announcement, the ABC representative said:
“I welcome the rent freeze for people living in Housing Executive homes.
“Working families are struggling with the rising cost of living, and Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey has stepped up to support them.
“We understand the pressure that ordinary families are under with spiralling energy costs and trying to put food on the table, this announcement will keep money in their pockets.
“I want to reiterate Minister Hargey’s call on Housing Associations to support their tenants by also announcing a freeze on their rents.”
