Announcing an online meeting on Sinn Féin’s vision for a fair and equitable policy on housing, Dublin South West TD Seán Crowe has said that the Government’s continuing failure to provide affordable homes to rent and buy represents a complete abdication of governmental policy, and the abandonment of ordinary families to the mercies of the market.
The Dublin South West TD said “Recently released data from the CSO Residential Property Price Index show the relentless increase in house prices, with an average increase of 3% across the state and 5% outside Dublin over the past 12 months alone. This is simply not sustainable, and the figures represent the abject failure of the government parties to formulate coherent policies to address the housing crisis. There is an alternative, however. Sinn Féin have the long-term policies to address the housing crisis by initiating the large scale delivery of affordable homes to rent and buy.
I am delighted to announce the hosting of an online meeting to discuss Sinn Féin’s vision for a fair and equitable government policy on housing. The meeting will be held Thursday 13th May at 7pm, and I will be joined by Senator Lynn Boylan, along with Sinn Féin spokesperson on Housing, Eoin Ó Broin TD. I would encourage members of the public to attend the meeting and engage in an open discussion on Sinn Féin’s housing policy, and hear what a Sinn Féin government will do to address the crisis.”
