LHG Annual Conference 2021 Motion: Housing as a Human Right

LHG’s motion for Annual Conference 2021 is about the need to enshrine housing as a human right into our legislation.

This would make a huge difference to people in housing need – slashing homelessness, ensuring that we build the right sorts of homes, making sure housing is affordable, in the right places, with the right facilities, and with adequate safety and security of tenure.

This motion was passed unanimously as part of the housing composite, and the principle of housing as a human right being part of Labour policy was supported by the Shadow Secretary of State,Lucy Powell in her speech.
