JCWI To Challenge Home Office Over Right-To-Rent

The Joint Council for Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) has written to the Home Office to call for a halt to the rollout of the scheme of the Government’s Right-to-Rent scheme awaiting a full evaluation of its impact in England. The Joint Council is threatening to take legal action if the Government continues to implement the policy, which is yet to expand beyond England. Saira Grant, Chief Executive of JCWI, said: “In the face of clear evidence of discrimination under Right-to-Rent, the Government must show it is not acting illegally before it presses ahead with a rollout to the rest of the UK.”Read more on the NLA website.
