UK: New Legislation to Protect Renters From Eviction Amid Coronavirus Crisis, Says PM Johnson

Boris Johnson spoke in parliament today to announce new emergency legislation to stimulate the economy and prevent a severe fallout from the coronavirus outbreak.

“I can indeed confirm that we will be bringing forth legislation to protect private renters from eviction. That is one thing we’ll do. But it’s also important as we legislate that we do not simply pass on the problem. So we’ll also be taking steps to protect other actors in the economy,” the prime minister said.

“We’ve announced another 500 million to go straight into counsels to help them immediately with the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable. That’s why we’ve announced immediate cash injections into business to help them through an unquestionably very difficult time. That’s why we’ll be bringing forth further measures to ensure that every worker receives help throughout this difficult period,” he also said, in response to the opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn.

The UK has announced strict measures to contain the illness, with businesses closing across the country as the illness has afflicted nearly 2,000 of its residents.
