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

By campaigning for it! This is an amazing campaign - good luck!

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

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

Absolutely.

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

As long as they're not built on fields and stuff, 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

Sounds like a good idea.

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

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

Its a really complicated question, and I'm basically "information is free", so I guess no restrictions!

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

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

I don't know what the current surveillance law is - basically we should allow people to do what they want as long as it doesn't harm others, so laws on surveillance should respect that principle.

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

Everyone should have a recompense against bullies, I don't know the details of this, sorry (I'm all about the ecig). How is it different?

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

organisation: Generation Rent

Its absurd - I basically relied on someone to die to get my mortgage (despite saving for many years), House prices are a symptom of a sick society.

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

organisation: CISTA

Hmmm, it totally depends. We are massive supporters of Harm Reduction (that is the point of us, in fact) - would a Royal Commission promote this?
