How would you reform surveillance law, oversight and practice to respect the rights of law-abiding people?

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

Have workers committees oversee the police and milliaty activity.

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

All aspects of housing should be controlled by the people.

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

All housing should be controlled by the state. Build good quality houses at fair tents. End homelessness

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

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

The whole spying operation should be shut down and those officials and politicians heading it should be brought to justice

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

Money used for the persute of wars should be used to build vacilitues in hospitals and state owned care homes where people can spend as much time with their loved ones as they wish.

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

They are not regulated in the interest of people. Companies are allowed to place all kinds of harmful additives into food to make them more profitable. Good industry should be taken over by the people. Good for need not profit.

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

I am in favour of taking the whole building industry into workers control. Grants are fished out to private companies who then build second rate houses either for massive sale prices or rip off rents.

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

organisation: CISTA

Royal commissions are a means by which capitalist governments create laws to control the people. Drug abuse is caused by the rotten capitalist system that removes hope and confidence in people. Bring about a socialist society the need to take drugs ends.
