Greg Beales was quoted on 2 March 2019 as saying: “Shelter research shows that almost one in three renters receiving housing benefit haven’t been able to apply for a home they wanted due to discriminatory practices ranging from ‘no DSS’ adverts to total bans on people receiving housing benefit.”
“But in the end, it will be people power that makes the difference. So if you want to be part of the movement standing up to fight this prejudice then look on our website, sign our petition and add your voice to the campaign to end this disgusting practice for good.”
