Brokenshire’s green paper shows Government has run out of ideas – Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding the Government’s social housing Green Paper, said:

“This pitiful document reveals a Government that has run out of ideas on housing. Nothing in this Green Paper measures up to the scale of the housing crisis.

“The number of new social rented homes is at a record low but there is no new money to increase supply, and ministers are still preventing local authorities run by all parties from building the council homes their communities need.

“After eight years of failure on housing, ministers should back Labour’s long-term plan for a million new genuinely affordable homes over ten years.”
