The end of Right to Buy?

17th September 2012

The Trades Union Congress will campaign to end the right to buy after delegates at its annual conference approved a motion on housing.

The policy put forward also called for the general council of congress to push for a ‘massive increase’ in social house building.

It also wants the government to implement new rules requiring companies to train apprentices on social housing sites, and scrap the affordable homes programme, which allows landlords to charge up to 80 per cent of market rent for homes.
