Man Alive: Landlord and Tenant: 2: What Price a Fair Deal?

on BBC Two England

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
Reporters Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, Denis Tuohy, Desmond Wilcox and Harold Williamson.

This week: Landlord and Tenant: 2: What Price a Fair Deal?

The new Housing Finance Bill is claimed, by the Government, to be the most important housing reform of this century. The aim of this legislation, which concerns both the private and the public sector, is to provide 'a decent home for every family at a price they can afford.' But opponents, both in and out of Parliament, have called it Government-sponsored inflation, say that it will double rents, send house prices soaring, split the nation into 'have' and 'havenots' - with millions having to face the indignity of a means test.
In the second and final programme on this troubled subject, Man Alive invites to the studio landlords and tenants, as well as Government spokesmen in favour of the legislation and opposition critics.
