GCN’s Christian Weaver discusses housing disrepair on Radio 4’s Today programme

28 November 2022

Christian Weaver

Christian Weaver, of our inquests and public inquiries team, was interviewed on Radio 4’s Today programme as part of a 10-minute segment on the important, and sadly widespread, issue of housing disrepair.

Christian represents the family of Awaab Ishak and discusses the proposed Awaab’s law.

The segment also features a woman in private rented accommodation suffering similar damp and mould issues to those faced by Awaab’s family. Christian also highlights the hope that any legislation introduced will make positive change across the rental sector in social, housing association and private properties.

The segment lasts around 10 minutes from 2:32:50. Listen at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m001fd8m
