The Tories’ housing record is one of five years of failure. This Bill does nothing to correct the causes of that failure and in many areas will make the housing crisis much worse.
Home-ownership has fallen every year since 2010, and this Bill is a big let-down for aspiring home-owners. It leaves home-ownership out of reach for most families and young people on ordinary incomes.
The current Housing Bill will lead to a huge loss of affordable homes to rent and buy, which will intensify the spiral of ever higher housing costs.
On Thursday 17 March at 5pm we're holding a Housing Policy Forum with John Healey MP, Shadow Cabinet Minister for Housing and Roberta Blackman-Woods, City of Durham MP and Shadow Housing & Planning Minister to discuss Labour's future housing policy.
