It is shameful that in the last six months the Government has funded only 307 new homes for social rent – Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, commenting on the latest affordable housing figures which show just 307 new central Government funded homes for social rent were completed in the six months from April to September 2018, said:

“It is shameful that in the last six months the Government has funded only 307 new homes for social rent, when over a million households are on council waiting lists.

“After eight years of Conservative failure on housing, Labour will build a million new genuinely affordable homes over ten years, the majority for social rent.”
