Sir: Martin Moylan (Letters, 16 April) is quite right about the devastating effect of the single- room-rent measure on housing benefit for landlords. The effect on tenants will be even worse since there is not enough shared accommodation to go round. Liberal Democrats would revoke these regulations and will force a vote on them at the earliest opportunity in the next parliament.
