A landlords’ organisation has welcomed signals that the government may reverse the ban on bedsits.

They were outlawed in 2013 on health and safety grounds.

However, the housing crisis has led to increasing calls to legalise single occupancy units.

Fintan McNamara from the Residential Landlords Association says his members never understood the original blanket ban describing it as foolish.
