The latest National House Building Council statistics will say that there has been a 6% growth in the number of new homes built in 2017 on the previous year.
Responding, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said:
“A 6% increase to 160,000 homes still leaves the country a long way short on the 300,000 a year everyone now agrees is necessary to provide some stability to the market and provide hope to would-be first time buyers.
“This modest increase in new houses is dwarfed by the hike in bonuses enjoyed by house building executives, fuelled by the flawed Right-to-Buy scheme.”Leave a comment
