Thangam Debbonaire responds to reports of 95% mortgages in the Budget

Thangam Debbonaire MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to reports of plans for 95% mortgages in the Budget, said:

“Home ownership has fallen in the decade the Conservatives spent weakening the foundations of our economy.

“If the Chancellor wants to help young people get on, he should deliver a Budget with a relentless focus on jobs and growth.

“What young people need to get on is the secure future that comes with a decent job and genuinely affordable new houses to be built for them to make homes of, not going back to the days of sky high mortgages.”
