Brokenshire busted: Tories’ ‘pitiful’ social housing strategy has no new money for housebuilding

Busted: James Brokenshire.

This is the reason families are sleeping next to dustbins and their children’s head teachers are relying on charities to help them.

As Jeremy Corbyn has pointed out: “You can’t build new social housing without any new money.

“Labour will build the homes we desperately need.”

The Tories’ “pitiful” new social housing strategy fails to commit a “single extra penny” toward constructing new homes, campaigners have warned.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said a Green Paper introduced today would help re-balance the relationship between tenants and landlords and help tenants get on the housing ladder.

But Labour said it was “pitiful” that the long-awaited proposals committed no new money towards building new social homes.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation said the paper “does little to address the fundamental lack of low-cost rented homes”.

And the Local Government Association (LGA) warned the announcement was “only a small step, compared with the huge and immediate need for more genuinely affordable homes”.
