Responding to reports that the eviction ban in England will be extended until 20 September, Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran said:
"No-one should face losing their homes while this deadly virus still hasn't been properly brought under control.
"Extending the eviction ban by just a mere month is nothing more than kicking the can down the road. It is a dereliction of duty.
"For families who have been days away from the threat of eviction, this news will go down like a bucket of cold sick.
"The Government must get real on renters right and immediately ease worries by extending the ban until there is a proper long-term solution for people who have found themselves in crisis."
