Our response to ONS inflation data, June 2023

Responding to the latest inflation statistics Claire Harding, Interim Chief Executive at Centre for London, said:

“Politicians are waking up to the impact that inflation is having on people with mortgages – but they haven’t got to grips with the pressure on millions facing more rent rises.

Londoners face the country’s highest cost of living, driven by soaring rents in the private sector. Families who rent need long-term measures to build more homes, medium-term policies to reduce inflation, and short-term help to make it through a tough year ahead.”
