Ireland must not leave renters in the lurch

The draft budget for 2015 presented by the Irish government last week foresees no rise in the rent supplement for the needy. Given that rents in Dublin rose at least ten percent on average last year, the conservative daily brands this as unsocial: "Let us be crystal clear on this: The Government has the power to prevent more people becoming homeless. They must raise rent supplement to match market rents. They failed to do that in the Budget and more families have already become homeless. ... If our Government tells people who can't afford a home (and no social housing is available) that they must go to the private rented market, it must ensure it is possible to obtain a secure and long-term home. It cannot stand over a system that leaves many at the lower end of the market at the mercy of rising rents with no security."
