Thirty two per cent of Irish people think the next Government should build more houses as a first step towards solving the housing problem in Ireland according to new research. 

Protection specialists, Royal London, recently commissioned a nationwide survey, conducted by IReach, of 1,000 people throughout the country to see how they think the housing crisis can be tackled.
 
Approximately 28% of Irish people think the Government should apply strict rent controls and 21% think the red tape around building new homes should be cut.
 
Joe Charles of Royal London explained, "Property and housing is a huge issue facing this country at the moment, and it is very much at the forefront of people’s minds. Supply shortages, lending restrictions and a lack of funding to deal with housing and homeless issues, are really impacting the lives of thousands of Irish people and families."
