Miliband accuses Con-Dems of being soft on Homeownerism.
Ed Miliband has claimed the actions of the government are making it harder to provide homes. The actions of the government are making it increasingly difficult to provide homes in the UK, it has been claimed. The politician backed up his argument by pointing to cuts in investment, the removal of the requirement on local authorities to allow new homes and the "botching" of the planning system. He stated this generation of politicians needs to act now in order to prevent people having to wait until they are in their 40s before they can afford to buy their first home. "A task I have set for our policy review is that we must seek to stop the inexorable rise in the average age of home ownership," Mr Miliband added.
