Conservatives to review right to buy
The Conservatives' ongoing policy review will consider the future of right to buy – but leading party members say they will be ‘very surprised' if a major change is recommended.Shadow housing spokesperson Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP confirmed the policy was ‘one of many things' discussed at a private meeting with Tory councillors last week.‘We are in the middle of a policy review at the moment,' he said. ‘We will obviously need to look at the whole issue of the right to buy.‘I think it's unlikely we will change our policy but everything is open for consideration.'Paul Bettison, chair of the Local Government Association's housing executive, said: ‘I certainly would not anticipate that a future Conservative government would be looking to remove the right to buy. However I think there may well be a number of modifications.'
