Fine Gael TD for Dublin North West, Noel Rock, has welcomed the Government’s commitment to rent transparency.
Deputy Rock said: “As a renter myself, I know well the burdens that people of my generation are under when it comes to rental pressures.
“The measures announced today achieve the thrust of what I set out to achieve with the Rent Transparency Bill 2017 and I am satisfied that the Minister took my points from the Bill on board in forming the new legislation.
“To this end, I will be withdrawing the Rent Transparency Bill from the Oireachtas.
“Good foundations were laid through my proposals, and I am delighted to see useful and practical measures put forward by my colleague Minister Murphy.
“I am hopeful that they will improve things for renters.”
