Does my right hon. Friend agree that shared ownership is one of the most affordable options for low and middle-income families? Indeed, Shelter says that 95% of those families would be able to afford a three-bedroom home with shared ownership.

It is exactly the sort of thing on which we should focus if we want more people to be able to own affordable homes in future.
