Focusing on housing today on the campaign trail, Conservative candidate for Southampton Test, Paul Holmes invited the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP down to visit a new development in Southampton.
Speaking at a new affordable housing development in Southampton, Paul Holmes said:
“One of the key issues I am focusing on in this campaign is providing more people with the opportunity to find a secure and affordable home for themselves and their families. One of the things local people raise with me on the doorsteps is the lack of affordable homes available to rent or buy.
“Labour’s dismal record has failed thousands in Southampton and if elected as your MP, I am committed to make sure that we build more of the homes that Southampton needs”
The Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government, the Rt. Hon Sajid Javid commented:
“Labour have missed their affordable housing targets for years in Southampton. Last year, they built less than a quarter of what they promised. Paul has a plan to deliver more affordable homes in Southampton that will really help local residents”
