Resource description

In the run up to the Conservative party conference, David Cameron outlined plans to bring back the Right to Buy policy for council tenants. 2 million tenants might now be eligible for this revived scheme, potentially funding 200,000 new homes. Christine Whitehead looks at how this policy may now be affected by the current financial situation, higher prices and harder to get mortgages
