"What we're looking for at this stage is for landlords who now clearly know - irresponsible landlords - who now clearly know what they're doing, when these young people contact them for summer lets what they're contacting them for is for a party house. And what we want now, is we want legislation brought in by the government that will give fines or prosecution to landlords who knowingly let out their houses for summer parties because because that's what they're doing.
Lana O'Connor : "Of course, currently, they're not breaking the law by doing that Catherine"
