The right of parents to remain with their children in hospital has been established for over forty years. How would you ensure carers of people with dementia are equally welcome in hospital?

organisation: John's Campaign

As our society grows older, we need to recognise that the needs of carers and visitors to hospitals evolves in turn. I would therefore support any campaign to ensure carers of people with dementia receive these rights.

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!

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?

Yes

Britain spends £24 billion on housing benefit and less than £1.5 billion on building homes. Do you support an increase in the social housebuilding grant to £5 billion a year to build homes?

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes, the Green Party is committed to creating 500,000 new homes

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

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes, but a more pressing issue is the lack of decent social housing

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, and we also need to end tax relief on buy-to-let mortgages

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

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

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

organisation: CISTA
