Building more homes "hard left proposal" claims Tory MP

Today the Gazette revealed that evictions in Ealing are soaring to record levels. Rupa called the situation "ridiculous" and a result of "a chronic housing shortage, the Bedroom tax and rip of letting agent fees."

See the full article below.

However, Labour's policy of building 200,000 new homes a year by 2020 to help relieve the housing crisis for renters and first time buyers was branded a "hard left proposal" by the sitting Tory MP.

Rupa has responded today saying:

"The idea that building homes is in any way a radical policy as my Tory opponent suggests shows how utterly detached from reality the Conservative party has become.

The housing crisis is real and is putting a squeeze on both private renters and first time buyers unable to get on to the property ladder. Labour seeks to help relieve this issue by building more homes - if this is objectionable to the sitting Tory MP we can only assume she is totally out-of-touch with the issues facing many of her constituents."
