Ministers have not set out how their Right to Buy policy will be paid for, and housing experts have said that the plan is unworkable, unfunded and will lead to fewer affordable homes.

The Communities Secretary has said that every home will be replaced but it was clear he didn’t even know his own policy when he said there was no requirement to replace homes under the existing policy.
The Government made the same commitment in the last Parliament - and failed miserably with only one home started to be built for every 10 homes sold. Nobody will believe their promises now.
