Charles Walker secures Ministerial meeting to discuss better protection for tenant deposits

Charles Walker MP speaking in the House of Commons, 18 October 2017

Following an announcement of a consultation on introducing regulation of property agents, Charles Walker calls on the Government to also look at better protecting tenant deposits by letting tenants choose which scheme to use to protect their deposit.

Mr Charles Walker (Broxbourne) (Con)

Will the Minister meet me and representatives of the three deposit protection schemes and of Shelter to discuss how we can better protect tenant deposits and put tenants in the driving seat when it comes to choosing the scheme that looks after their deposit?

Alok Sharma

Yes, I absolutely will. I know that my hon. Friend has a great deal of knowledge of and experience in this area.
