The market is driven by demand, those with an income of 12K or less, of which there are many thousands, cannot raise the necessary deposit and maintain their living standards.

After the war I lived in social housing namely a prefab. I also have some work experience of social housing having managed £500 million worth of housing association stock in the 90s. My view is that a 50% discount on purchase of social housing stock is no longer a sensible policy. When 400 000 properties a year were being built and self ownership needed to be encouraged it had some merit but not now when there is insufficient housing stock for families on low income and new build is simple not keeping up with existing demand. I have little faith in any Government pledge to replace housing stock sold at a discount. BobG
