Opposition Day — Housing — 10 Jun 2015 at 16:21

Anna Soubry MP, Broxtowe voted against tackling the housing crisis by building more homes, increasing home ownership, improving the private rented sector and reducing homelessness and rough sleeping.

The majority of MPs voted against tackling the housing crisis by building more homes (including affordable homes), increasing home ownership, improving the private rented sector and reducing homelessness and rough sleeping.

The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • notes that the UK faces an urgent and growing housing crisis;
  • believes that the Government should bring forward a comprehensive plan to tackle the housing crisis which sets out concrete steps to build more homes, including badly-needed affordable homes, boost home ownership, improve the private rented sector and reduce homelessness and rough sleeping; and
  • regrets that over the past five years home completions have been at their lowest level in peacetime since the 1920s, that home ownership has fallen to a thirty-year low with a record number of young people living with their parents into their twenties and thirties, that there are 1.4 million families on the waiting list for a social home and that since 2010 homelessness has risen by 31 per cent and rough sleeping by 55 per cent.
