New housing minister Rachel Maclean will be 15th since 2010

CPS Head of Housing responds to the news that the UK will have it’s 15th Housing Minister since 2010.

In a quote picked up by the BBC, Samuel Hughes said the change – brought about as a result of the Prime Minister’s recent reshuffle and the creation of new government departments – said “We have had many good housing ministers in recent years, but there can be too much of a good thing. Choosing one excellent housing minister and then sticking with them would help a lot in delivering the sustained and systematic reform we need.”

He went on to say that “without those reforms, the housing shortage will continue to worsen, destroying the dream of homeownership for a generation of young people.”
