PricedOut attacks vested-interest Tory MP landlords

PricedOut, a group that has urged tougher tax treatment for buy-to-let landlords, reviewed public documents listing the financial interests of all MPs and found that 83 out of the Conservative party’s 305 elected representatives are making money from private tenants living in properties they own.

Which translates to 27%. One Tory MP has a portfolio of 26 rental properties. Hang about, you say, what about the rest? Among Labour MPs, the figure was 12.5%, among the LibDems 15%. PricedOut - an organisation that campaigns for affordable housing - accuses the Tories of having vested interests and profiting from high house prices. Read more from PricedOut here.
