More than 9,000 evictions expected in the coming months, with virtually no homes available to rent
Record homeless figures for March represent another grim milestone for this Government, according to Social Democrats TD Cian O’Callaghan.
Deputy O’Callaghan, who is the party’s Housing spokesperson, said:
“The latest figures show there are now 11,988 people living in homeless emergency accommodation, 3,472 of them children.
“This shows that the ban on no-fault evictions is more urgently needed than ever before. It helped people avoid entering homelessness and children were spared from growing up in emergency accommodation.
“The latest reports from the Residential Tenancies Board revealed there are more than 9,000 evictions due in the coming months, while there are virtually no homes available to rent.
“The ban on no-fault evictions must be reinstated. It is never too late to reverse a bad decision.”
