Preventing homelessness in Reading

Find out what prospective parliamentary candidates in Reading West plan to do about the housing crisis

19 November 2019

Launchpad is hosting a housing and homelessness question and answer session with prospective parliamentary candidates in Reading in the run up to the election.

We have asked candidates from the four major political parties – Conservative, Labour, Green Party and Liberal Democrats – to discuss their views with us on homelessness, housing and Section 21 (no-fault evictions) and how they plan to address these issues in Reading West. Three of the parties have responded so far, and we will provide updates on other bookings as and when they happen.

The sessions will be held over the coming weeks in anticipation of the general election in December, and as they are closed to the public, the interviews will be filmed and later shared on our Facebook page.

If you have a question you would like to pose to the parliamentary candidates on housing and homelessness, please email marketing@launchpadreading.org.uk with the candidate’s name in the subject of your email, and we will endeavour to ask the question during the session.
