With her back against the wall PM fails to deliver - Lib Dems

March 7, 2018 8:00 AM

Responding to Theresa May's housing speech, Wera Hobhouse, Liberal Democrat Communities Spokesperson, said:

"Even with her back against the wall the Prime Minister has once again failed to deliver.

"The Conservatives cannot rely on the private sector to provide affordable housing. Housing developers will always act in the best interests of their shareholders, which means keeping house prices high. The Liberal Democrats are calling for tens of billions of real investment in new housing.

"If the government are not willing to put up the public funds to solve the housing crisis and ensure the people get the home they needs, then they need to look at where they are spending money elsewhere to fix the problem. Government incompetence and a refusal to enforce radical housing policies is putting this country on shaky foundations."
