Greens back down on rent caps to help pass Labor’s Housing Australia Future Fund | Englishheadline


The Greens are vowing to make rights for renters the main sticking point for supporting future government legislation on housing after backing down on a demand for rent caps in exchange for passing Labor’s Housing Australia Future Fund.

The Senate will sit late into the night on Tuesday to get all the formalities completed before the bill is expected to pass on Wednesday.

The threat of a double-dissolution election trigger looming over politics for some time was not apparently the primary reason for this being pushed through quickly from the Greens’ perspective.

They say that the government wanted to get a deal done on this front.

Now the party has vowed to continue fighting for as long as takes to focus on renters’ rights.
