Ministers to extend 'right-to-buy' policy
A new era of “right-to-buy” will be heralded by ministers today as part of a fundamental shake-up of Government housing policy.
Grant Shapps, the Housing Minister said last night: “You will acquire the right to buy at a discount from housing associations. The present system is too muddled."
Still nothing from the Minister, even though his favoured housing association is asking him to clarify this point also - bearing in mind it is normally impossible to shut this Minister up his 13 months of silence does seem a little odd. Odder still is that the opposition and media seem happy to leave the Minister unchallenged over the right-to-buy issue.
Why the silence on all sides?
