He says a freeze on rents and a ban on evictions is needed

A homeless campaigner says reports of a cap on rent increases of 2 per cent, doesn't go far enough.

12,000 people in Kildare, alone, live in privately rented accommodation.

The measure could be signed off by the Cabinet by the end of the month according to the Irish Independent.

Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien faced criticism following Tuesday's budget, with opposition parties saying there was little for renters.
