Alison Seabeck MP, Labour's Shadow Housing Minister, responding to the Countryside Alliance report on affordable rural housing said:

"People aspiring to their own home in communities across the country are suffering as a result of this Tory-led Government's failure on affordable housing. In government, Labour delivered 256,000 additional affordable homes in its last 5 years in office - over a third more new homes than this Government says it will provide.

"At the same time, the Tories and Lib Dems voted against Labour's proposal for more affordable house building paid for by taxing bankers' bonuses, which would have helped thousands of families across the country."
