Agenda 29 June

Why has it taken so long to have updated rules in place for landlords and tenants in the private sector? We speak to those involved in trying to make that happen, and take a look at a new bill aimed at regulating the private rental market. But what can be learned from previous efforts to manage this sector, and how can that be applied to what’s now being proposed?
