The Tories’ homes re-announcement

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, commenting on the Conservatives’ re-announcement of homes for first-time buyers, said “This is yet another empty promise from the Conservatives, after 10 years of failure on housing.

“We’ve heard this all before. Conservative Ministers previously pledged to build 200,000 cut-price homes for first-time buyers, but the National Audit Office has confirmed they haven’t built a single one, despite wasting almost five years and spending millions of pounds.

“Unlike Labour, the Tories have no plan to fix the housing crisis.”
