Our research has been cited in the House of Lords and the Guardian recently.
The House of Lords resumed its debate on the Housing and Planning Bill on 18 April. The government’s proposal to introduce fixed-term tenancies was the subject of a series of amendments. Our initial findings on that topic, by team members Prof Suzanne Fitzpatrick and Dr Beth Watts of Heriot Watt University, was cited by Lord Kerslake and Lord Beecham. Read the full findings paper.
And at the Guardian, social affairs editor Patrick Butler reported on the issue of in-work conditionality for people receiving Universal Credit. Our research on that issue, by Prof Peter Dwyer of the University of York and Dr Sharon Wright of the University of Glasgow, featured prominently. Read the story. And here’s our submission on in-work conditionality to the Commons Work and Pensions Committee inquiry earlier this year.
