Should people in Scotland and Northern Ireland have the same free speech protections from libel bullies as their neighbours in England and Wales?

organisation: English PEN

Yes

The standards of goods and services that are essential, such as food and water, are generally highly regulated. Do you support enforced minimum standards in housing as a precondition of a renting?

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes, especially for health-related standards e.g. damp, mould and air quality.

Governments implement policies that directly and indirectly impact on house prices. Do you think house prices are too high?

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes, especially in London.

To what degree should access to information on the internet be restricted by the state or private companies?

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

I believe both the state and internet publishers have a duty to protect citizens, especially children, from potentially damaging material so I support some level of restriction by state and private companies.

Would you support the creation of a Royal Commission to review Britain’s drug laws?

organisation: CISTA

Yes.

Private sector landlords receive over £27bn a year in housing benefit and tax breaks. Would you support a rent tax that recouped up to a third of this to fund new housing supply?

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes, as long as the risks and consequences were fully thought through - for example inadvertently creating a shortage of rental properties on the market.

Recent polling show that people support rent control by a margin of nine to one. Do you support a rent control that limits rent rises between tenancies as well as during tenancies?

organisation: Generation Rent

Not sure: do rent controls not sometimes lead to shortage of rental properties, which would create a different problem for renters?
