Communities and Local Government Questions: Council Housing

On Monday, I asked the Housing Minister, Gavin Barwell MP, why the Tory Government is failing to build the houses that are needed over the border in England.

I pointed out to the Minister that the Labour controlled Flintshire County Council has worked tirelessly with the Labour controlled Assembly to deliver 600 new council homes in Flintshire.

The Minister failed to give a decent answer to how the Conservative Government are going to tackle the housing crisis in England. This is disappointing as the solution to the housing crisis is simple: build more houses.

Labour is Wales, despite facing opposition from the Tories, has redirected resources to ensure that the good quality social housing is built. Government is all about choice and the choices made by the Tories show that they are against the many and only for the few.
