Written answers (Question to Environment)

In the context of increasing rents, especially in the Dublin area, I asked the PRTB to carry out research to explore options to address the difficulties being experienced in segments of the private rented sector and to report back to me with policy recommendations before the end of June. The study is underway but is not yet completed.
