Poll: Should there be a freeze on all evictions for a year?

Despite a ramp up in the number of houses being built, homeless figures continue to rise each month.
May 1st 2019, 9:08 AM 29,132 100

DO YOU THINK there should be a freeze on all types of evictions up to a year, in order to allow the government to supply the houses needed to meet demand?

Evictions by landlords in order to sell a property are contributing to rising homelessness figures, which is now at 10,300, according to official figures released yesterday.

On Morning Ireland today, Minister of State Damien English said that a temporary eviction cap wouldn’t help, and that the government’s housing plan was working.

So, do you think there should be a freeze on all evictions for 12 months?


Poll Results:

No (6868)
Yes, with the option to extend it (3003)
Yes, but no longer than that (720)
I don't know (476)
