Hilary Benn, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, commenting on official statistics published today revealing the Government’s NewBuy scheme has delivered less than 5% of the 100,000 mortgages promised by David Cameron, said:

“David Cameron promised to help 100,000 families with the NewBuy scheme. Yet two years after announcing it less than 5% of that number have actually been helped on to the housing ladder.
“It shows how out of touch David Cameron is that while he claims to have turned things around, home ownership remains out of reach for many young families.”
