Now which party is actually committed to making homes affordable for the average wage earner?

Cons

  • Build "fixed-term council houses", sold privately after 10-15 years with automatic Right to Buy for tenants
  • Build one million homes by end of 2020 and 500,000 more by end of 2022 (100,000 per year)
  • Build 160,000 houses on government-owned land
  • Implement the Homelessness Reduction Act to halve rough sleeping

Labs

  • Introduce controls on rent rises
  • Suspend the right to buy policy
  • Build at least 100,000 council and housing association homes a year
  • Make available 4,000 additional homes for rough sleepers

Libs

  • Set target to build 300,000 new homes a year
  • Create 10 new garden cities in England
  • Stop right to buy for housing association tenants
  • Allow councils to charge 200% council tax on foreign-owned empty homes

Greens

  • Introduce rent controls and ban letting fees
  • Build 100,000 social rented homes a year by 2022
  • End Right to Buy discounts
  • Aim for house price stability

You've missed off Labour's completely crazy policy of extending Help To Buy until 2026 (or 7).

At least - don't know what else, but certainly that

Wonder how that works alongside the bank they're going to create to give mortgages to the young.

Have a 100% mortgage young chap and we'll loan you the 25% deposit as we're the nice party!
