In response to the continuation of Brandon Lewis MP as Minister of State for Communities and Local Government with responsibility for housing and planning David Orr, chief executive of the National Housing Federation, said:
“We look forward to continuing our work with Brandon Lewis MP as Housing and Planning Minister. Housing is one of the biggest issues facing the country right now and we will further our discussions with Mr Lewis on the areas where housing associations can and do play a vital role.
“We need our new government to deliver a long term plan to end the housing crisis within a generation. To achieve that it must include an ambitious house building programme that will build the 245,000 new homes we need each year, including 80,000 affordable homes.”
