Ahead of the Autumn Statement, HM Treasury received submissions from a range of stakeholders. While it would not be appropriate to respond in detail to each individual proposals, the government did carefully consider all submissions.
In particular the Treasury responded to calls for more to be done on housing. The Chancellor announced at the Autumn Statement that government would invest an additional £5.3bn in housing. This includes a £2.3bn Housing Infrastructure Fund to deliver infrastructure to unlock 100,000 homes and £1.4bn to deliver 40,000 new affordable homes. Government also announced that it would relax restrictions on existing affordable housing funding to deliver a wider variety of affordable housing tenures to help people at different stages in their lives.
