In June 2011, I announced that members of our armed forces would have top priority for FirstBuy and all Government funded affordable home ownership schemes.
I also announced that I would be sending special housing agents into military bases to help members of the armed forces get a foot on the housing ladder.
We do not hold a central record of visits. However, I can confirm that since my announcement HomeBuy Agents have visited armed forces bases in the UK and abroad. This includes bases in Catterick, Telford, Colchester, Portsmouth, Dartmouth, Cornwall, Germany and Cyprus.
