Labour is to call a vote in the Commons in an attempt to ban letting agents from charging fees to tenants.

Party leader Ed Miliband said people who buy a house are not charged fees by agents, but people who rent are. He said Labour was “determined to stand up for generation rent” and deliver an “immediate financial benefit” to people who do rent.

The Association of Residential Letting Agents said it was “deeply concerned” by Labour’s proposals.

Labour will table its proposal as an amendment to the Consumer Rights Bill in the Commons on Tuesday.
