This Government is committed to the Right to Buy, which has helped nearly two million council tenants to realise their dream of home ownership.

As the Prime Minister has announced, we want housing association tenants to have the same opportunity as local authority tenants to be able to enjoy the benefits that homeownership brings.

We will be working closely with the housing association sector as we develop the scheme and will announce more details in due course.
