Commenting on Labour’s plans to build a million ‘genuinely affordable’ properties over 10 years, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“It’s great to see Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party taking the housing crisis so seriously.

“A million genuinely affordable homes would be a good start to fixing our broken housing system, and action on homelessness and decent home standards is another example of common sense policy making.

“Too many of those working in our hospitals, schools and town halls are priced out of working in the communities they serve. Labour’s plan offers an opportunity to change that.

“Shadow ministers like John Healey and Melanie Onn have listened and taken action – and given millions facing unbearable financial pressure real hope.”
