A new bill which - if enacted - would link rents to people's incomes is to be debated in the Dail today.
The People Before Profit proposal also seeks to establish a National Rent Authority.
Yesterday the Taoiseach Micheál Martin said there would not be a landlord left in Ireland if the bill was to pass.
Meanwhile a Cost of Living Protest will be held outside the Dail this evening to coincide with the debate on the People Before Profit Bill.
The Cost of Living Coalition says urgent action is needed on the price of food and energy, social welfare increases and rent reductions.
