Question for written answer E-003791-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto (S&D)

 Subject:  Access to affordable, quality housing
 Answer in writing 

Access to decent and adequate housing is a fundamental right and an international obligation both for the Member States and for the European Union, since it is enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights, the European Social Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. More recently, the European Pillar of Social Rights includes in its Principle 19 the right to housing and assistance for the homeless.

As set out in Article 3 TEU, the EU must combat exclusion and discrimination and promote social justice and protection.

Bearing in mind that it is not only the duty, but also the responsibility of the Member States to formulate a housing policy to secure this fundamental right and promote universal access to affordable and adequate housing, does the Commission intend to take action to ensure this right in the territory of the Union?
