Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: We were speaking about that three years ago.

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: I am glad that so many Members are keen to speak in the debate, which has been delayed for too long and is unfortunately too short. It has been almost a year since we had a housing debate in Government time. The Secretary of State told us in December: “Housing remains the Government’s top priority”.—[Official Report, 10 December 2018; Vol. 651, c. 18.] It is a pity that he has not...

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: No. It is good to see the Housing Minister speaking for the Government today. He not only told the House that housing was the Government’s chief domestic priority, but told an industry conference in February that “once we get beyond Brexit, housing will be the Government’s priority.” Given the mess that the Government have made of Brexit for more than two years, and given that the...

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: Unfortunately, although there are good landlords and many tenants are satisfied with the homes that they rent, my hon. Friend has described the experience that too many of the country’s now 11 million renters face from day to day. After nine years in office, the Government just cannot carry on talking about what they are going to do. What they are doing at the moment simply is not working.

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: The hon. Gentleman has a very short memory. In 2009 we were in the direct aftermath of a global financial crisis and recession. It was the action that the Government took then that kept house building going and helped to pull the country out of the crisis. More than a decade on, under this Government, the level of house building has still not reached the pre-crisis peak. We have seen a...

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: The Minister does himself, the Government and the Grenfell survivors a disservice when the story he tries to tell with those figures is so at odds with the experience of the people affected by the fire.

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: It is the most obvious sign of a broken market, when house builders are making bumper profits and bumper bonuses building homes that ordinary workers cannot afford to buy. These are the fundamental facts. These are the hard truths about the Conservatives’ record on housing, which Ministers cannot deny or disguise, and which, come the next election, the Conservative party will not be able to...

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: It is indeed, and if my hon. Friend looks at the big Green Paper plan that Labour has published, “Housing for the Many”, she will see that we talk not only about building more but about building better. We talk about doing what the public sector has often done in the past—namely, building to better standards. We want these to be the highest standards of design, accessibility, energy...

Housing (9 Apr 2019)

John Healey: 12,500.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homes for Social Rent (8 Apr 2019)

John Healey: Two years ago, the Prime Minister at long last admitted that “we simply have not given enough attention to social housing”.—[Official Report, 22 June 2017; Vol. 626, c. 169.] Will the Secretary of State confirm that, since the Prime Minister’s admission, his Government have recorded the two worst years for social house building in the 74 years since the second world war?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homes for Social Rent (8 Apr 2019)

John Healey: What the Secretary of State is doing is not working, which is why we have a housing crisis. One thing that he did not confirm is the hard fact that social house building has hit a record low under this Government’s watch. He told me recently that he has committed to funding only 12,500 new social rented homes over the six years to 2022, which will not even replace the homes lost through...
