by ePolitix reports on the exchanges during this week’s session of questions to the prime minister.

Patrick Hall (Lab, Bedford) raised the issue of affordable housing and the need for mortgage finance, noting that the Conservatives have campaigned against extra support.

Gordon Brown stated the government is “investing billions more in affordable housing” and that banks are also providing more housing finance. He added that the Conservatives would propose to cut public spending by 10 per cent.
