John Healey MP responds to James Brokenshire’s speech

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to pre-released sections of James Brokenshire’s speech to Conservative Party Conference, said:

“Conservative Ministers have run out of ideas and have no plan to fix the housing crisis.

“After eight years of failure, we need more than reheated policy proposals and announcements of small-scale developments which are still years away.

“If Ministers are serious about housing they should back Labour’s plans to build a million genuinely affordable homes, give renters new rights and end rough sleeping within a Parliament.”
