The number of Government-funded social rented homes being built has fallen by almost 90% since 2010 – Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to new affordable housing statistics which show that the number of Government-funded social rented homes being built has fallen by almost 90% since 2010, said:

“A year since Theresa May admitted that the Conservatives haven’t given enough attention to social housing, it’s clear Ministers are still not building the homes the country needs.

“After 8 years of failure on housing, the Conservatives should back Labour’s long-term plan for a million new genuinely affordable homes.”
