Government backs call for more affordable housing

November 13th 2009
Housing Minister Alex Neil backed housing charity Shelter Scotland's recent call for the UK Government to unlock more money for affordable housing in Scotland. Mr Neil said: "I welcome Shelter Scotland's support for an acceleration of capital spending from 2011-12 into next year - it's essential if we are to sustain our record levels of investment in affordable housing and other vital infrastructure into 2010-11. We hope that all parties in Scotland will join with the Scottish Government, Shelter, the STUC and others in urging the Chancellor to announce accelerated spending for next year in his Pre-Budget Report. "Public expenditure on housing in Scotland, as a share of total spend, is considerably more than in England."
