Government has no plan to fix the housing crisis – John Healey MP

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Housing, responding to Theresa May’s housing speech, said:

“We’ve heard hand-wringing on housing from Theresa May before, but there’s nothing new here that will make a difference. After eight years of failure, it’s clear this Government has got no plan to fix the housing crisis.

“Home-ownership has fallen to a thirty-year low, rough sleeping has more than doubled and the number of new homes built for social rent has fallen to the lowest level since records began.

“Only Labour has a long-term plan to build the genuinely affordable homes the country needs.”
