According to Labour members polled by You.Gov on behalf of Jon Cruddas, affordable housing should be at the top of the party's new agenda.
An overwhelming 82% believe "funding should be available to local councils to build low-cost council housing on the same basis as housing associations". The Treasury has opposed this on the basis that it will breach government borrowing rules, since arm's length bodies need not count against government borrowing. Will we see some movement on this in the first few months of a Brown led government? I certainly hope so.
