Steve Brine MP

Housing for young people raised in Commons

Steve Brine raised the issue of housing for young people in the House of Commons on Monday 10th November.

The Winchester & Chandler's Ford MP has long campaigned on the issue with Parliamentary colleagues, and he praised Help to Buy, which has allowed 54,000 families who can afford mortgage payments but would have found the deposit impossible, to buy a home since March 2012.

Mr Brine pushed the government to deliver an extra 100,000 starter homes at a 20% discount, and Communities Minister Brandon Lewis MP confirmed that the Conservatives want to ensure that the policy is delivered, giving many more people the opportunity to get onto the first rung of the housing ladder.

We recognise that people with ME have encountered significant stigma, in part due to the unfavourable media representations of the condition that not only go back to the 1980s but have continued in recent times. I have seen a clip of Ricky...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)
Steve Brine: I fully appreciate that point—the hon. Lady put it on the record very well earlier—which takes us on very neatly to welfare benefits. The hon. Members who requested the debate also flagged the issue of benefits. I know they would like, and are having, an ongoing conversation with the DWP. I am clearly not a DWP Minister—they wanted a Health Minister to respond to the debate,...
