Dominic Raab should stop trying to blame others for unaffordable housing costs – Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the release of Government research on house prices, said:

“The Housing Minister has got the wrong priorities. The evidence is clear that immigration is not the major driver of rising housing prices.

“Rather than try to blame others for unaffordable housing costs, Dominic Raab should look at the decisions Conservative Ministers have made since 2010. Deep cuts to housing investment have halved the number of new low-cost homes for first-time buyers and driven the number of new social rented homes being built to a record low.”
