“Housing ministry returns cash to Treasury”

Affordable homes? Pah, who needs them!

“The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has returned £817m of unspent cash to the Treasury.

According to website Huffington Post, the money includes £329m for the government’s Starter Homes programme, £72m for affordable homes and £52m for estate regeneration.

Labour’s shadow housing secretary, John Healey, said: “If the secretary of state can’t defend his department’s budget from the Treasury he should give the job to someone who can.”
