With the recession more people are likely to struggle with the cost of housing – Thangam Debbonaire

Thangam Debbonaire MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the Resolution Foundation’s report finding first-time buyers will struggle to get onto the property ladder even if house prices fall, said:

“Everyone deserves a secure, affordable home, whether they own or rent. The UK is in recession for the first time in 11 years, and more people are likely to struggle with the cost of housing.

“So far, the Government has prioritised tax breaks to landlords and second homeowners. It needs a plan to tackle the jobs, homelessness and housing crises.”
