asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is satisfied with the level of mobility in the rented housing market; and if he will make a statement.

The level of mobility in the private rented sector has been adversely affected by the decline in the supply of privately rented accommodation.

We hope to introduce measures in the next Parliament to stimulate the supply of private rented homes and thus to increase mobility particularly for job-related reasons.
