Stephen contributes to Parliamentary debate on Housebuilding

Last week, Stephen spoke in the House of Commons about the urgent need to embark on a large new programme of housebuilding.

Likening the scale of the problem to that faced immediately after World War Two, Stephen called on the Government to take immediate action and end the daily misery of thousands of families living in substandard accommodation.

Speaking after the chamber appearance, Stephen said: 'I was privileged to recently host the Archbishop of Canterbury's Housing Commission in my constituency. Initiatives like these are shining a vital light on housing problems locally and it is clear that urgent action is now needed - there is not a moment to lose'.
