Jack Dromey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Minister, responding to reports that social housing tenants could be offered discounts of up to £75,000 when buying their home, said:

“Labour supports those who want to buy their own home. But there are nearly two million families on Council waiting lists desperate for a home. Every Council home sold must be replaced by another Council home built. But Councils will have less money to build at a time of the worst housing crisis in a generation, with rents up, homelessness up and housebuilding falling.”
