The activities of estate action are welcome. However, does the Minister accept that people in Bradford who are in desperate housing need wonder why the Government have refused the city council permission to borrow more to build homes and to use capital receipts for building purposes.

Will the Minister give information about Government policy, which is stopping the city of Bradford from tackling its housing crisis?
