Commenting on the housing proposals unveiled by the government, Sir Andrew Green said:
"An astonishing aspect of the housing debate is the deafening silence on the impact of immigration. The extra 16,000 houses promised by the government today will meet less than a quarter of the annual demand from new immigrant households. One good way to tackle the housing crisis would be to reduce immigration to a sensible level."
