New house price statistics show Tories have failed to help younger people get a good start in life – John Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow
Secretary of State for Housing,

commenting on new house price statistics, said:

“The number of home-owners under
45 has fallen by over 900,000 since the Conservatives came to power in 2010.

“The Tories have spent seven years
talking about home-ownership but they have failed to help younger people on ordinary
incomes get a good start in life and failed to build the new homes our country
needs. The number of new low-cost homes to buy has halved since 2010.

“Labour will give young working
people fresh hope of owning their own home by building more affordable housing
for first-time buyers, cutting stamp duty, and giving local people first-dibs
on new homes built in their area.”
