The Conservatives haven't delivered, we need more affordable homes now!

I was delighted to be able to speak about the importance of affordable housing at the Liberal Democrat conference in Southport last weekend.

This is an issue very close to my heart. I was raised in a council property and, as I stated in my speech, the stability and grounding that home provided helped me develop throughout my teenage years.

However, these days more and more people are not as lucky as I was and are being forced into paying huge rents with many more people being priced out of living under a permanent roof completely.

We need to build more houses and we need to help council's provide more homes. That was my message to delegates on saturday - take a look.
