Keep the right to lifetime tenancy for council house tenants

This petition had 12,119 supporters

The Daily Mirror has launched a Save Our Council Homes campaign to try to stop the Tory attack on council tenants.

We are strongly opposed to the Government's plan to end lifetime tenancies for people living in council housing.

The plans were unveiled by the Tory Government without warning at a little-attended House of Commons committee. 

All new tenants will be given short-term leases of between two and five years and then face a reassessment that could see them booted out of their homes.

This will have a disastrous impact on communities across the country.

We urge them to think again and restore this long-held right for council tenants immediately.
