… because house prices are too high?
This was very briefly mentioned on BBC breakfast this morning, ONCE. Housing waiting lists in England will reach record levels by 2011, according to a body of housing associations. An extra 200,000 families over the next two years will push the total to a new high of around two million, the National Housing Federation said. It predicts that 80,000 will lack a home as a result of repossessions and unemployment, and the rest because of the shortage of social rented housing.
