Renters Reform Bill dead in the water?

So with the Leader of the House stating in the Commons minutes ago that the Government will soon be negotiating with the Opposition in order to pass any legislation I am assuming the Renters Reform Bill is, even at this late stage, is dead in the water.

Why would Labour want to gift the Tories an easy win on a core Labour issue? The question is, with only a Third Reading in the Lords left to go are the Labour Lords going to be able to wreck the Bill with amendments or will the Conservatives voluntarily pull it, as Penny Mordant's statement would suggest?


I know everyone on here is concerned that Labour would be far worse for Landlords but I don't see how. Whatever they propose can't be worse than the current Renters Reform Bill. Sure, rent caps may bring some chickens home to roost for those who are over-leveraged but Labour is not the Marxist Corbyn-esk era of old.

I may be the only one on here but I am genuinely looking forward to the fresh air of July 5th 2024.
