Hull North MP Diana Johnson made the speech below in the House of Commons in the debate on the private rented sector on 25 June 2014.


 


Diana Johnson (Kingston upon Hull North) (Lab):


In Hull, about 23,000 families—one in five of all local households—rent privately, and this figure has risen over the past decade.

I therefore fully support the motion.
